Friday in Focus: Chintan Chandrachud

by | Aug 10, 2018

I am an associate at Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan, London. My practice focuses on commercial litigation, international arbitration and tax litigation. Some of the work that I have done in the last couple of years includes: acting for a group of hedge funds in a claim of share price manipulation against an automotive component provider in the High Court; acting for a South African mining conglomerate in a claim for breach of contract in arbitration proceedings against the Republic of Ghana; and acting for a British mining conglomerate in tax disputes against the Tanzania Revenue Authority.

I hold a BCL from Oxford, an LLM from Yale and a PhD from Cambridge. Most of my research and writing has focused on constitutional law. My PhD was published by Oxford University Press under the title “Balanced Constitutionalism: Courts and Legislatures in India and the United Kingdom”. I have continued to publish since I moved into private practice. Some of the recent work I have done includes:

  • “Anti-Corruption by Fiat: Structural Injunctions and Public Interest Litigation in India” (upcoming in the Socio-Legal Review);
  • “Constitutional Falsehoods: The Fourth Judges Case and the Basic Structure Doctrine in India” (upcoming in An Unconstitutional Constitution? Unamendability in Constitutional Democracies) and
  • book reviews published in the American Journal of Comparative Law and the International Journal of Constitutional Law.

I thoroughly enjoyed my experience at Oxford. I was an editor of the Oxford Human Rights Hub Blog and Executive Committee Member of Oxford Pro Bono Publico. I encourage readers to explore opportunities with either – or perhaps both!
