Who's Who Legal UK Bar - Construction - Silks

A highly sought-after silk described as a “leading lawyer of her generation” who handles some of the most high-value and complex cases in the world, both as lead counsel and as arbitrator, Anneliese has extensive expertise in commercial, energy, construction, investment treaty, insurance and professional liability disputes in both a national and international context.  Described as having “extraordinary talent”, “eloquence” and “an ability to explain complex issues to lay clients", she is a firm believer in seeking to bring added value to any case whatever her role.

A source states: “Instructing her is like sending your opponent a battering ram with a first-class stamp. She is frighteningly bright, superb on her feet, completely unflappable, has an exceptional work ethic and is blessed with an incredible memory for detail.”

In the last year alone, Anneliese has been involved in a number of high-profile international commercial, construction and energy disputes around the world, including the termination of a US$350 million contract in Trinidad (having also successfully called in the project security in the Court of Appeal in London); one of the largest arbitrations in the world in Singapore involving a mine in Australia; a dispute concerning decommissioning of a nuclear power plant in Lithuania; an arbitration in London concerning the Crescent Development Project in Azerbaijan; and several high-profile professional negligence claims in the UK, the DIFC and Cayman. She has also successfully acted on behalf of both the UK government and Birmingham City Council in complex PFI disputes about the M25 and Birmingham’s Road Network (worth £80 million each) and successfully led three appeals in the Court of Appeal. She is currently acting for Alhambra Resources in their ongoing ICSID claim against the Republic of Kazakhstan (in a $500 million dispute) being heard in Washington DC. 

She is described as “a charming, intelligent and ruthlessly brilliant advocate” and “a good leader for the 21st century”.

She was named as Construction Barrister of the Year at the Chambers & Partners Bar Awards 2018; Construction and Energy Silk of the Year 2018 at the Legal 500 UK Awards; and Barrister of the Year 2014 by The Lawyer. She was selected as one of the 500 most influential people in the UK by Debretts in 2015.

She is said to be “tough, tenacious and impressive on her feet ... a supremely intelligent litigator with the perfect balance between charm and incisiveness.”

WWL says: Anneliese Day QC stands out at the construction bar as "a magnificent lawyer with exceptional personal skills", according to sources.
