Toby Landau QC is ‘A leading light in arbitration, working at an elevated level. ’
Toby Landau QC of Essex Court Chambers continues to command such renown in this practice area that interviewees use astronomical parallels to describe him, one source speaking of his "stratospheric reputation," and another calling him "a real star at the top of his game." His success, however, is said to owe much to very solid, down-to-earth qualities, reference being made to his "very measured, very calm and very persuasive" advocacy and to the "good mix of investor-state and commercial work" which makes up a substantial proportion of his caseload and for which he is "highly sought after," in Singapore in particular.
