Timothy Killen is ranked for the fifth year in Legal 500 EMEA and in Chambers Global for his work in the Gulf Region.
This marks another year of impressive growth for the whole set in the GCC and a return to the region for the annual conference.
We are delighted to see Timothy Killen as Band 1 ranked for the fifth year in the Legal 500 Guide to the EMEA region in recognition of his commercial disputes work in the Middle East. Tim is also ranked as a Band 1 junior in the Chambers Global Guide which was released earlier in 2023.
Described as ‘a first-class legal mind’ whose ‘pleadings are a work of art’, Tim spends a considerable amount of time working in the UAE. He has just returned from a 2-week trial in the DIFC Court on the long-running dispute, Globemed Gulf Healthcare Solutions LLC v Oman Insurance Company PSC.
His practice focuses on commercial disputes. Many of the claims and arbitrations he works on are related to the insurance, construction, and financial sectors.
The set generally continues to benefit from heightened activity in the UAE market. Typically, cases relate to major commercial and contract disputes between local and international companies where sums at stake are high and matters are complex and often of a highly sensitive nature.
Highly regarded Silks, Bob Moxon Browne KC and Charles Dougherty KC, have both been busy with arbitration and litigation work in the region this year, while junior members, such as Lucas Fear Segal, Emily Albou and James Partridge, are also establishing themselves as sought after practitioners.
We were delighted to be able to host our annual in-person conference at the Ritz Carlton DIFC, Dubai again following a two year break due to COVID and we look forward to being back for the next one in February 2023. Our Senior Clerk, Lee Tyler, and Joint Deputy Senior Clerk, Billy Hammonds, will be returning to the region for the Dubai Arbitration Week in November 2023 and look forward to catching up with clients and friends then.
