Who's Who Legal Arbitration: Lawyers

Christopher Style is a Queen’s Counsel and arbitrator practising at One Essex Court. He has 40 years’ experience of international dispute resolution, including acting as counsel and arbitrator in institutional and ad hoc references involving many systems of law and with seats in many of the centres of international arbitration.

Between 1977 and 2012 Christopher practised at an international law firm. He acquired solicitor’s higher courts rights in 1997 and was appointed silk in 2006. His practice has included disputes arising out of banking and financial services (securities including derivatives, loans, guarantees, pensions, defaults, restructurings and recoveries and criminal and regulatory matters); corporate transactions (mergers and acquisitions, shareholder issues, post-acquisition, joint ventures and partnerships); professional negligence (lawyers, accountants, financial institutions, hotel management); the telecom and defence sectors, energy and infrastructure, insurance, aviation and shipping. He was called to the Bar to develop his practice as arbitrator in international commercial arbitration.

Christopher has published numerous articles and is a frequent speaker on arbitration law and practice. He is a fellow of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators, deputy chairman of the board of the LCIA and one of the UK’s representatives on the ICC Commission on Arbitration.

Christopher enjoys wide market recognition. Chambers describes him as “very responsive. He has a pleasant demeanour, is open to both parties and makes you feel you’re getting a very fair hearing”. The Legal 500 says he is “a very organised and efficient chairman, who gets to the heart of the matter patiently and in an agreeable fashion”.

WWL says: Christopher Style QC is a firm favourite for many market sources who consider him “energetic, effective and a pleasure to deal with”.
