Tim Chelmick

Barrister, 4 New Square Chambers
E&W Steering Committee

Tim is a commercial barrister whose practice has a particular emphasis on international arbitration, construction, and professional liability.

After completing his degree in Chemistry at the University of Oxford, Tim worked as a software developer in the technology department of Goldman Sachs for 2 years, during which time he lived and worked in London, New York and Hong Kong. He therefore has a strong scientific background and experience living and working in multiple countries.

Since joining 4 New Square in 2005, Tim has also spent 2 years working in Dubai, and a significant proportion of his work now involves matters relating to the Middle East. He is recommended in a number of categories in the UK legal directories and is one of only two leading juniors recommended for both commercial and construction disputes in Legal 500’s UAE guide for the English bar.
