Lord Glennie (Angus Glennie)

Lord Glennie (Angus Glennie)

Silk: 1991 (England & Wales); 1998 (Scotland) Call: 1974 (England & Wales); 1992 (Scotland)

Lord Glennie returned to Twenty Essex as a full-time arbitrator in December 2020 on stepping down from the Bench in Scotland. He will be appointed Chair of the Scottish Arbitration Centre after ICCA in Edinburgh (September 2021) and will act as Vice-Chair of the Centre in the interim.

Angus Glennie has extensive experience of virtual hearings, having conducted virtual appeals (and occasional first instance hearings) by WebEx in the months leading up to his re-joining chambers, and spoken at meetings and conferences by Zoom.

After being appointed to the High Court bench in Edinburgh in 2005 (as a Senator of the College of Justice with the judicial title of Lord Glennie) he was the principal commercial judge in the Court of Session (2007-2011). With the coming into force of the Arbitration (Scotland) Act 2010, he was appointed an arbitration judge in 2010, dealing with the first cases to come before the Scottish courts under that Act. He was also a nominated intellectual property judge and a judge of the Upper Tribunal (Tax and Chancery Chamber). He was appointed to the Inner House (Court of Appeal) in 2016 and made a member of the Privy Council.

In 2015-16 Angus Glennie chaired a committee to explore the possibility of setting up an Energy and Natural Resources Court within the Court of Session in Edinburgh.

From 2012 until 2019 he was Honorary Chair of the Edinburgh University Centre for Commercial Law. He is currently Chair of the Arbitration Court Users Group within the Court of Session in Scotland.

Before becoming a judge, Angus Glennie practised in commercial chambers in London, at 4 Essex Court (now Essex Court Chambers) and latterly at 20 Essex Street (now Twenty Essex). He appeared in the Commercial and Admiralty Courts, and in the Court of Appeal and the House of Lords, as well as in other jurisdictions such as Gibraltar and Brunei. He appeared regularly as counsel in arbitrations under LMAA, LCIA and ICC rules (as well as before commodity trade associations) and also acted as arbitrator in arbitrations under such rules.

In 1992 he joined the Faculty of Advocates and practised at the bar in Scotland, appearing frequently both in the Commercial Court in Edinburgh and on appeal to the Inner House and the House of Lords. He was also instructed as counsel in arbitrations relating to commercial and construction disputes.
