Outer Temple QCs in Bar Council delegation to New York

Outer Temple Chambers was strongly represented in a bespoke Bar Council delegation visiting New York (April 15 – 19, 2012), attending the American Bar Association’s Section of International Law conference. Richard Lissack QC, Gerard McDermott QC and Andrew Spink QC were all participating in a visit organised by the Council to promote the advocacy and advisory services of the English Bar to a key US marketplace. The visit featured various speaking and networking events, providing opportunities to engage with US businesses, in-house and other counsel, diplomats and legal bodies such as the NY State Bar and UN.

Outer Temple Chambers has a developing international dimension, with offices in New York and Abu Dhabi, as well as its London HQ and offices in Manchester; its barristers are increasingly instructed in complex international commercial litigation and arbitration work, often of a financial nature.

Gerard McDermott QC is a former President of the American Counsel Association, and a long time active member of the American Bar Association and, in particular, the Section of Litigation.

Andrew Spink QC chairs the COMBAR North American Committee, as well as being a registered advocate at the Dubai International Financial Centre.

Richard Lissack QC’s practice is national and international with recent instructions to work in New York, Abu Dhabi, the British Virgin Islands, Italy, Switzerland, Luxembourg and Hong Kong. He is also the author of the FSA Handbook and a co-author of a major work on Bribery and Anti-Corruption, topics which will be under the spotlight at the ABA’s conference.
