Mohammed Zaman QC, who is also a registered practitioner of the DIFC (Dubai International Finance Centre) Courts and a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators, said: "I was attracted to No5 Chambers because of its growing presence and stature on the international stage.
"They already have a number of exceptional barristers who advise and represent parties in Europe, Asia and the Middle East.
"They are an excellent fit for my work in the Middle East and South Asia. I look forward to working with my colleagues in the commercial and international groups at No5 on yet further complex and high value cases."
Tony McDaid, practice director at No5 Chambers, said: "I am delighted to welcome Mohammed to No5. His presence helps to underline the high regard in which our commercial and international groups are held and the commitment of No5's silks and juniors to provide to legal services not just in Britain but overseas.
"I look forward to No5 playing a role in Mohammed’s continuing success and his contribution to the national and international reputation of No5 Chambers."
