The Right Honourable Sir Stanley Burton
One Essex Court, London
Sir Stanley Burton was called to the Bar in 1965 and took silk in 1982. His practice started in general common law and then later grew to focus on international commercial disputes. Stanley sat as a deputy High Court judge in the Chancery Division from 1994 until he was appointed to the High Court Bench in 2000. In 2008 he was promoted to the Court of Appeal and in 2010 was elected Treasurer of Middle Temple.
Having retired as a judge, Stanley has returned to chambers to practise as an arbitrator. He is a trustee of the British Institute of International and Comparative Law and a member of its audit committee and previously chaired the Board of Trustees of the British and Irish Legal Information Institute (BAILII). Stanley’s impressive practice, insight from the bench and knowledge of arbitrations make him an excellent trainer with a wealth of experience to draw upon.
