The Association of Treasury Lawyers  
Banking Law Society / Egalitarian Bar Association a cross Border Law Org with quasi judical origins working seamlessly with corresponding Law Orgs ie any Law Society / Bar Association

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.

Treasury Lawyers have enjoyed recognition by The Law Society of England & Wales since prior to year 2000 & consequently High Courts have concurred

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

Our Media Panel has included Broadcasters & our experience in Television & Television Financing is a niche interest of The Association of Treasury Lawyers

latest insert includes Tribute to Gerald Godfrey CBE QC

our ATL Law Net / Panel has included International Law Firms since inception

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 Malaysia experience.

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.

In 2010 ATL received recommendations as 'super lawyer' for the period 2009/2010 given representation of Sectors of Industry which create leadership for clients...

These Sectors include..[below is a brief list only]
Venture Capital Advisory & Private Banking
Hedge Fund Formation & Regulation
