Angeline Welsh is a commercial litigator with over 15 years of experience and specific expertise in international arbitration. She has appeared (unled) before the English Commercial Court, the English Court of Appeal and conducted substantial advocacy before both commercial and investment treaty arbitral tribunals. She has also appeared (led) before the Supreme Court and the Privy Council, as well as various courts in the Caribbean. In addition, Angeline has substantial experience in handling cases involving issues of public law, constitutional law and human rights law and has sat as arbitrator in a significant number of arbitrations, either as sole, co- or presiding arbitrator.
Angeline is called to the bars of England and Wales, Belize and the British Virgin Islands. Prior to becoming a barrister, she was Counsel and Solicitor Advocate with a major international law firm and consequently has a unique insight of the pressures and demands on instructing solicitors as well as significant experience of leading teams and strategy for large litigation cases. She has litigated a broad range of commercial disputes, including those in the energy, telecoms, financial, construction, manufacturing and shipping sectors, before the English courts, courts in the commonwealth and arbitral tribunals under the LCIA, HKIAC, ICC, ICSID, UNCITRAL and BVI IAC rules.
In 2020, Angeline was recognised as a Global Leader for Arbitration by Who’s Who Legal, having been recommended for some time as both a Thought Leader and Leading Junior at the English Bar for arbitration. She is described in Chambers 2020 (UK and Global) as having an “impressive mastery of the details of the case and of technical legal arguments” as well as “[e]xtremely hands-on, approachable and a real team player.” Angeline was named as a ‘Star at the Bar’ by Legal Week in recognition of her “excellent judgement and leadership qualities” and not being frightened to tackle novel and difficult areas of law, or “to deal head-on with the more complicated aspects of a case”.
Angeline currently serves as a co-chair of the IBA Arbitration Committee’s ESG Subcommittee, on the ICC UK Selections Subcommittee, on the Arbitration Committee of the Lagos Court of Arbitration and as a board member for the ALN Academy.
