Sir Antony Edwards-Stuart is currently appointed as either chairman or co-arbitrator in several international arbitrations.
As a QC, he acted as leading counsel in several very substantial construction arbitrations. His last appointment as counsel in a major construction case was before a Dispute Adjudication Board in relation to the Dublin Port Tunnel, leading a large team of solicitors, counsel, experts and members of an Anglo/Irish/Japanese consortium for some three years.
Before that he acted for a well-known contractor in a £80 million claim against a government department, leading two junior counsel. The claim was unusual, since it comprised over 600 separate claims within the principal claim.
In addition, he acted also for a contractor in a very substantial claim against London Underground in respect of the new Jubilee Line Extension (this settled after several preliminary hearings but before the first main hearing), and for a respondent contractor in a dispute with a sub-contractor about electrical works at several London main line stations.
