Timothy Atkinson joins Chambers

Ely Place Chambers is delighted to announce that Timothy Atkinson, presently a member of 1 Brick Court, has accepted an invitation to join Chambers. Timothy will practice within Ely Place’s Media & Sport team, bringing with him his long-recognised expertise in defamation and information law that is reflected in recommendations in both Chambers & Partners and the Legal 500.

Timothy has appeared in a significant number of leading media law cases including appearances (both led and on his own) in the Court of Appeal as well as having appeared several times in the Supreme Court and Court of Appeal of Gibraltar. He has also addressed influential and prestigious meetings in the UK and abroad on the General Data Protection Regulation, taking part in a Meeting of Experts concerning the Regulation, organised to assist the European Commission, and giving a lead speech at the Annual Conference of the Society for Computers and Law. He has advised on several important Inquiry reports.

We look forward to Timothy’s arrival and to his contribution to the continuing growth of Chambers in general and to the development of its media offering in particular.
