The Association of Treasury Lawyers (the Association)
is historically affiliated to International Banking Associations and as
such covers every major Bank in the world through such relationships.
Historically the Association convenes Panels of
experts who may be Chief Representatives or Directors of Banks, to form
an Arbitration Tribunal. These issues may include, but are not limited
to misconduct and illegality within the Banking Industry.
The Tribunal is free to adopt international arbitration
rules, and for illustration purposes, the Association has
been invited to adopt Singapore International Arbitration Centre (or SIAC)
rules in Singapore.
Lawyers have enjoyed recognition by The Law Society of England &
Wales since prior to year 2000 & consequently High Courts have
from factfile: relevant
date being 26th January 2001, 3PM by a High Court Registrar in Singapore,
& other courts & jurisdictions followed - thereby Treasury
Lawyers enjoy Court Recognition for being equivalent to Solicitors
of England & Wales.
Treasury Lawyers, owing
to the constitution of The Association's International Law Panel,
may thus be defined simultaneously or synonymously as:
Solicitors of England & Wales equal in standing to that of 'magic
circle' City (of London) Firms given inter alia The Associations
affiliations, un-paralleled financial strength, & capability

latest insert includes Tribute to Gerald Godfrey CBE QC
our ATL Law Net / Panel has included International Law Firms since
we pay Tribute posthumously to Gerald Godfrey CBE QC as the first
Honorary Chancellor of ATL or Treasury Chancellor who has been on
our Panel since our meeting him in Hong Kong -
he met us in capacity as retired HK judge and was most supportive of
our Banking, & Regulation platform given the ability to draw opinion
from a leading Panel & thereby represent Industry Opinion ie of a
cross-section of Every Major Bank
and given our overlap with Banking & Finance Regulation we/ ATL were
concurrently welcomed by the HKMA (Cathy Chan) and the Law Society
(HK) in 2004 by the Director of Practitioners Affairs(Joyce Wong),
we seek to continue a warm friendship with the Law Society
(HK)...and Financial Regulators alike..recently we added the BOJ to
our 'friends list' given official referral to Japanese corporations
for green events / collaboration in 2009.
Since the Hong Kong Law Society welcomed ATL to practice via its
alliance or Law Net approach
this led to our Law Net being formed which has included, inter alia,
Jones Day. Participation in the Singapore Corporate Counsel
Association Education and International Liaison sub-Committees are
relevant to CLE points awarded.
The launch in 2010/2011 of the Russian Asian Chamber of
Commerce(RACC) and the Russian Asian Arbitration Center in S'pore &
HK...leads to our leadership as a Court of Arbitration that spans
Russia and Asia. We shall link with the Permanent Court of
Arbitration @ the Hague in due course.
Our widest recognition currently is as Consultant, and Partner
equivalent in a KL Law Firm in Sept 2010. This after a warm exchange
with the Regulator, BNM. We also obtained advisement from a Panel
member from Allen & Gledhill (Malaysia affiliate) as part of our
In 2010, our recommendations to join Law Firms in Commonwealth
Countries, including Australia as Partner
has currently led to Partner standing in a Singapore based Law Firm
via a Law Net referral
Given that ATL has obtained CLE Points via affiliated Corporate
Counsel Associations we are regularly offered to cross-over as
International Lawyers - minimum standing
being Partner in a Law Firm.

and covers Finance Industry - utilising Compliance Audit Analysis
we have a Chief Legal Auditor / Compliance Auditor role for Judiciary,

We utilise Legal Ratings Analysis which are over & above Financial Ratings
eg a Legal Rating of Triple A is higher than Financial Rating of Triple A given by a Financial Ratings Agency which more
often than not is tainted by conflict
