Emma Walker to join 2TG Chambers

Walker is currently instructed as junior counsel for one of the core participants in the Grenfell Tower Public Inquiry and is chair of the Bar Council’s Employed Barristers Committee.

2 Temple Gardens (2TG) has announced that Emma Walker, a commercial litigation, international arbitration and employment barrister, is joining chambers with effect from 1 January 2022. 

Walker will be joining from DWF Advocacy where she is currently head of commercial. Additionally, she has expertise in dealing with high-profile disputes across a range of industry sectors, including in commercial, banking, construction, oil and gas and aviation. 

2TG said Walker has a “particularly good reputation” in the Gulf Region as she has acted in ICC, LCIA, DIFC-LCIA and UNCITRAL arbitrations, as well as in complex commercial and employment law litigation. 

Walker is currently instructed as junior counsel for one of the core participants in the Grenfell Tower Public Inquiry, and she has ranked in this year’s Legal 500 as a key lawyer in commercial litigation.

Meanwhile, Walker has been an employed barrister for over five years and is chair of the Bar Council’s Employed Barristers Committee. 

Martin Porter QC, head of chambers, said: “Emma will join a thriving and dynamic set in 2 Temple Gardens, and we can’t wait to welcome her to chambers in January.

“Emma’s expertise in commercial litigation, arbitration and employment law, along with her impressive experience in the Gulf region, make her an excellent fit for our own market-leading practices in these areas. She will be an excellent addition and we look forward to supporting Emma as she continues to advance her career.”

Walker added: “I am delighted to be joining 2 Temple Gardens and am really excited to start this next chapter of my career at a set that enjoys such a progressive and supportive reputation in the market. I was naturally drawn to 2TG due to the obvious synergies with my own practice. It is just a perfect match.”
