Biography

Anneliese Day is a Queen's Counsel at Fountain Court Chambers who specialises in commercial disputes focused around professional liability, energy and natural resources, construction, and insurance, acting in very high-value cases both domestic and international. The "truly exceptional" nature of her work led her to win the prestigious "Barrister of the Year" at The Lawyer 2014 Awards in light of her string of "impressive achievements", the judges noting that "there's evidence of a fighter here - her versatility in both witness and expert handling really comes across. That is what we need in this profession". Anneliese was also named as Construction Silk of the Year at the 2014 Chambers Bar Awards and is listed in Debretts as a leader in her field and one of Britain's 500 most influential people due to her "extraordinary talent", eloquency, and ability to explain complex issues to lay clients". She is variously described in recent directories as: "tough, tenacious and impressive on her feet….. a supremely intelligent litigator with the perfect balance between charm and incisiveness.; "Instructing her is like sending your opponent a battering ram with a first-class stamp. She is frighteningly bright, superb on her feet, completely unflappable, has an exceptional work ethic and is blessed with an incredible memory for detail; "a charming, intelligent and ruthlessly brilliant advocate." In addition to her extensive domestic practice she is called to the Bar of Northern Ireland and is a registered advocate with the SICC and the DIFC. Anneliese has also advised and appeared in courts and tribunals in Singapore, the Middle East, Cayman Islands, Trinidad & Tobago, Hong Kong, Thailand, France, Germany, Ireland, USA and Turkey. In addition to Counsel work she also accepts instructions as an arbitrator and as an adjudicator.
