WWL says

Christopher Style QC is lauded as "a brilliant lawyer and a pleasure to work with" by peers, one of whom commends his "outstanding awards as an ICC court member". ​


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 in many of the principal industry sectors, including banking and finance, energy and resources, construction and infrastructure, professional services, shipping and commodities, transport, hospitality and leisure, insurance, healthcare and pharmaceuticals and technology and telecommunications. 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 says he is “bright, very good at the detail and really hard-working. He has a nice manner about him.” The Legal 500 describes him as: "An outstanding presiding arbitrator who demonstrates a close mastery of the file".
