Timothy Young QC

Timothy Young QC

Silk: 1996 Call: 1977

Timothy’s principal area of practice is international trade, embracing shipping, commodities, insurance, the carriage and sale of goods, banking and related disciplines.

He appears principally in the High Court and Court of Appeal and before various international arbitration tribunals, in relation to all manner of trading and financial disputes.

Timothy also acts as an arbitrator, either sole or as a member of a panel. He accepts appointments under the rules of the LMAA, ICC, LCIA, SIAC and ad hoc, if required. Timothy is on the panel of arbitrators of the ICC, LCIA and SIAC.

Much of his work is in arbitration and therefore, by definition, confidential unless the cases reach the courts. However, the key cases below, from several jurisdictions, give a taste of Timothy’s work.

Timothy was awarded “Best Shipping Silk 2016″ by Chambers and Partners.
