Siward Atkins KC

Call: 1995 Silk: 2020

Siward acts in disputes about companies, commercial agreements, trusts, insolvencies, civil fraud and real estate. The width of his practice means that he is often a one stop shop for any case with a mix of these elements.

He has appeared in many of the most important commercial and civil fraud cases in the last fifteen years, including Ablyazov, WT Air, Koza and the landmark case of Ivey v Genting. He has combined this with a variety of nimbler cases, many of which have gone to trial and the Court of Appeal.

As an advocate most of his work is in the High Court, although his real estate work also takes him to the County Court and Upper Tribunal. He has had more than 25 years’ experience in hard fought trials and applications of all kinds, but his friendly style and commercial common sense make him a popular advocate in mediations and other forms of ADR as well.

He is admitted to the Bar of the Eastern Caribbean Supreme Court (BVI).
