Charlotte Tan

Charlotte Tan

Call: 2008

Charlotte has a broad commercial practice, with a particular focus on civil fraud, international arbitration, insurance, international trade and finance, and private international law.

She is regularly instructed in matters in the High Court and the Court of Appeal. Charlotte also acts in international arbitrations under different rules (London Court of International Arbitration, International Chamber of Commerce and London Maritime Arbitrators Association). She has substantial experience of applications for interim relief, in particular freezing orders and anti-suit injunctions.

Charlotte regularly accepts instructions from overseas clients, in particular from Singapore and Hong Kong. She provides advices and pleadings as well as assisting with all aspects of case preparation for final hearings.

In 2014, she was selected in Legal Week’s “Stars at the Bar” as one of ten “up-and-coming commercial and Chancery barristers recognised for their exceptional abilities”. Charlotte was described as a junior who is “unflappable and always manages to maintain a calm, clear head and a sense of perspective”, “highly sought after” and a “real star”.

In 2009 Charlotte spent time at a large London LLP working within the international trade department. In 2010 she was seconded to Rajah & Tann in Singapore.
