Radcliffe Chambers is delighted to welcome commercial barrister Paul Burton as a new member.

Paul represents clients in business-critical commercial, company law and trusts disputes, which often involve transnational elements and allegations of fraud. He has extensive trial advocacy experience and his cases frequently start with urgent pre-emptive remedies. He is regularly instructed in international arbitrations.

Paul is recognised by Chambers UK Bar 2019, which notes that he makes “a frequent appearance in complex cross-border cases, standing out in particular for his trial advocacy.”

Paul said: “I am pleased to be joining Radcliffe Chambers and look forward to working with its clerks and management team to continue developing my practice, both domestically and internationally.”

Radcliffe Chambers’ Chief Executive Fiona Fitzgerald said: “Paul has an impressive commercial practice and is recognised for being an outstanding advocate. His arrival strengthens our international commercial and arbitration offerings and furthers our commitment to meeting the changing needs of our client base.”

Radcliffe Chambers is a leading chancery and commercial set. It was described by Legal 500 UK Bar 2019 as “‘the go-to set’ for contentious trust and probate work, as well as charity law, pensions, real estate, complex insolvency and commercial litigation work.”
