Peter Turner KC Joins 39 Essex Chambers

Peter Turner KC Announcement

We are delighted to announce that Peter Turner KC has joined 39 Essex Chambers. 
After 27 years as an arbitration partner at Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer, Peter is joining 39 Essex Chambers to pursue a career as counsel and arbitrator at the English Bar. Pending his call to the Bar, Peter will practice as counsel, as an avocat in Paris and take arbitral appointments. We are very pleased to have Peter join 39 Essex Chambers.
Peter graduated from Cambridge University. He practised as an English Solicitor and French avocat à la cour at Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer. He was appointed King’s Counsel in 2015.
Lindsay Scott, Chief Executive of 39 Essex Chambers, said

“We are very happy that such an experienced practitioner as Peter will join us. We look forward to his doing so as soon as he has been called to the Bar of England & Wales. He will further strengthen our international, investment treaty and commercial teams and add to the likes of Loretta Malintoppi, David Bateson, Lord Dyson and Richard Wilmot-Smith KC from our diverse group of 39 Arbitrators.”

On the prospect of joining Chambers Peter adds

“I am rather emotional about leaving Freshfields, where I have practised for so many happy years with such wonderful colleagues, but I am very excited about having the freedom to take matters on (whether in arbitration or the courts, in England and France) without the constraints of being a partner in a big firm.”
