Keating Chambers

About The Set

Keating is a heavyweight commercial set with a market-leading construction law practice. Its barristers (among them 29 QCs) specialise in all aspects of this area, including engineering, energy and natural resources, infrastructure and utilities, international arbitration, IT and technology, offshore construction and marine engineering, procurement and competition, and associated professional negligence.

The set's expertise extends beyond litigation to alternative dispute resolution and advisory services. Much of this work is international. As an interesting aside, Keating’s mastery of construction law is underlined by its members’ authorship of the preeminent text on the subject, Keating on Construction Contracts.
