Who's Who Legal UK Bar - Shipping - Silks

Vasanti Selvaratnam QC practises in international commercial arbitration and commercial court litigation, regularly handling multimillion-dollar disputes across a wide range of industry sectors, including shipping, trade and commodity disputes, banking and finance, insurance, jurisdiction disputes, conflict of law issues and civil fraud. She also specialises in all forms of interim relief, including freezing orders and anti-suit injunctions. She is particularly noted for her user-friendly “hands-on” approach to cases and for her ability quickly to get to grips with disputes raising complex factual and technical issues which require a sound grasp of expert evidence and mastery of detail.

Reported leading cases include the House of Lords decision in The Starsin [2004] 1 AC 715; the Court of Appeal decision in The Wadi Sudr [2010] 1 Lloyd’s Rep 193 (leading case on the arbitration exception, the Judgments Regulation and issue estoppel); and Joint Stock Asset Management Co Ingosstrakh-Investments v BNP Paribas [2012] 1 Lloyd’s Rep 649 (leading case on non-contractual anti-suit injunctions).

Her professional memberships include COMBAR, the Chancery Bar Association, the LCLBA, the BMLA, the ICC, the LMAA, ICCA, the London Shipping Law Centre (head of education sub-committee) and the Bar European Group

Vasanti was called to the Bar in 1983, and received her LLM in 1984. She has been a practising barrister at the Commercial Bar since 1985; a Recorder since 2000; Queen's Counsel since 2001; a Bencher of Middle Temple since 2011; and a member of the LOF panel of arbitrators since 2013. Vasanti accepts appointments as an arbitrator in a wide range of commercial disputes under all institutional rules as well as ad hoc.
