Joseph Carney


Joseph has a broad commercial (advice, litigation and arbitration) and Chancery practice involving particular expertise in commercial fraud, commercial contracts, shareholder disputes, insurance, professional negligence and trust disputes.

Joseph practised for ten years at the Victorian bar in Melbourne, Australia, before being called in England in November 2004. Josephâ??s practice at the Victorian bar commonly involved large disputes in which he would appear either alone or as junior to leading senior counsel.

Joseph has established a busy commercial practice in England since joining Chambers in 2005, which has been dominated by two substantial commercial arbitrations.

From 2005 to 2007 Joseph acted on behalf of certain upper level excess insurers in a Bermuda form arbitration regarding the cancellation and coverage of policies potentially applicable to worldwide product liability lawsuits brought against a leading US pharmaceutical company.

From 2008 Joseph has acted in a substantial ad hoc arbitration regarding breaches of fiduciary and contractual duties (including the diversion of business opportunities) arising out of a business venture in the Republic of Kazakhstan.
