Gonin will join the chamber’s international arbitration team, and Wolffe will join its roster of counsel and arbitrators.

Brick Court Chambers announced that Emilie Gonin has joined chambers as a tenant, with James Wolffe QC rejoining as a door tenant in January.

Gonin specialises in investment treaty and international commercial arbitration, as well as commercial litigation relating thereto. She also has “significant” expertise in public international law and human rights law.

Legal 500 said Gonin is “thorough in her analysis, precise in her drafting and clear in her thoughts”.

Meanwhile, Wolffe was previously a door tenant at Brick Court between 2013-2016. He was also formerly the dean of the Faculty of Advocates, the elected leader of the Scottish bar between 2014-2016 and lord advocate, the senior Scottish law officer, between 2016-2021.

As lord advocate, Wolffe was head of the systems of criminal prosecution and investigation of deaths in Scotland. Before his appointment, he had a public and commercial law practice as a Scottish advocate.

Helen Davies QC, joint head of chambers, said: “We are very pleased to welcome Emilie to Brick Court, and James on his return. Emilie will add yet further depth to our members active in international arbitration, and James will join the distinguished roster of counsel and arbitrators amongst our door tenants.”

Gonin added: “I am thrilled to be joining Brick Court Chambers with its stellar reputation for commercial litigation and international arbitration.”

James said: “I am delighted to be returning as a door tenant to Brick Court Chambers, with its record of excellence in public and commercial law.”
