Paul Wee

Paul Wee is a barrister at Essex Court Chambers in London, specialising in commercial law and investor-state arbitration. Recommended by Chambers Global, Chambers and Partners and the Legal 500 as a leading junior barrister in the fields of international arbitration, energy and natural resources, and public international law, he is described by the directories as ‘a real star’, ‘a standout senior junior’ and ‘one of the best at the Bar’ (Legal 500 2022). Paul Wee acts for governments, corporations, financial institutions and individuals in disputes spanning a diverse range of sectors, including banking and finance, oil and gas, energy and infrastructure, mining and exploration, telecommunications, IT, manufacturing, and entertainment and media.
Hailed as ‘a sensation’ (Fanfare), ‘totally astonishing’ and ‘an astounding figure’ (BBC Radio 3 Record Review), Paul Wee has been recognised as ‘a pianist who possesses transcendental technical prowess, the stamina of a marathon runner, a sure command of large-scale structure, rhythmic élan, and a large portfolio of nuance and color’ (ClassicsToday). After deciding not to pursue a primary career in the arts, he studied law at the University of Oxford, obtaining his BA (Jurisprudence) and BCL from Keble College. He was called to the Bar by Gray’s Inn in 2010, and attempts to balance his love for the piano alongside the demands of a busy practice at the Bar. His début recording of Alkan’s Symphony for Solo Piano and Concerto for Solo Piano was released on BIS in 2019 to critical acclaim, being shortlisted for a Gramophone Award and Limelight’s Recording of the Year in the Instrumental category, and receiving a Gramophone Editor’s Choice and a Diapason d’Or. His recording of transcriptions by Sigismond Thalberg met with similar praise, being featured as an Instrumental Choice by BBC Music Magazine and a Limelight Editor’s Choice
