Chintan joined chambers in July 2021, following the successful completion of his pupillage. He is developing a broad practice, covering commercial litigation, arbitration, tax litigation and public law litigation.
Chintan spent four years as a solicitor at Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan LLP before moving to the Bar. His notable representations included acting for a Ukrainian commercial bank in PCA arbitration proceedings under the Russia-Ukraine Bilateral Investment Treaty, acting for a group of hedge funds in a claim of share price manipulation on Indian stock markets at the Commercial Court, and acting for a British mining conglomerate in the largest ever tax dispute (USD 200 billion) against the Tanzania Revenue Authority. He was listed by Chambers & Partners as an “associate to watch”, and by Legal 500 as a “key lawyer”, for tax litigation.
