Paolo Busco joins 20 Essex Street

Duncan Matthews QC and Christopher Hancock QC are delighted to announce that Paolo Busco has joined 20 Essex Street as a Registered European Lawyer and a resident member of Chambers.

Paolo is a lawyer admitted to practice in Italy and registered as a European lawyer with the Bar of England and Wales. He specialises in public international law, arbitration and general dispute settlement. Paolo brings to his practice experience in both complex international negotiations and in assisting international adjudicatory bodies, which he developed while working as an Assistant Legal Counsel at the Permanent Court of Arbitration in The Hague. He holds an LLM in international law from the University of Cambridge, where he was also associated with the Lauterpacht Centre for International Law.

Paolo assists States, international organisations and private companies. He is an external advisor to the Italian Ministry of Home Affairs on issues of international law and has been selected as an expert on general legal affairs by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations. In addition to advisory work, he is currently involved in matters pending before Annex VII Arbitral Tribunals, the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea and investment Tribunals.

This move is one of a series of strategic retentions by the Set of up and coming International Law experts over the course of the last seven years including: Penelope Nevill, Monica Feria-TintaBelinda McRae, Dr Kate Parlett and Dr Philippa Webb who have joined to supplement 20 Essex Street’s roster of Tier 1 ranked Silks and Senior Statesmen in this practice area.

The addition of Paolo to 20 Essex Street’s roster of excellent Silks and Juniors further bolsters the set’s commercial capabilities which are increasingly in demand from International clients managing their business interests in the context of Brexit, increased regulation and political risk.

Duncan Matthews QC said: “It is a delight to welcome a lawyer with Paolo’s international recognition to 20 Essex Street. His wealth of experience complements that of the Set which has been gaining momentum over a number of years.”

Paolo says: “After the privilege of having a number of them as mentors, I am thrilled to be joining a community of barristers that are not only practising international law, but really shaping it.”
