Arbitrator & Mediator

I offer 30 years’ experience of arbitration, mediation and court proceedings in many jurisdictions worldwide as:

  •  Legal practitioner
  •  Commercial user of dispute resolution services
  •  Client

With a strong commercial background from many years as General Counsel, my focus is on solving problems and achieving results. As a lawyer, I offer integrity and impeccable ethics.

Through diverse roles in the maritime industry, I have acquired considerable commercial and operational know-how as well as a significant hands-on understanding of insurance, trade and corporate finance, supply chain logistics, derivative trading, insolvency and cross-border issues.

Having worked in private practice and in-house, in the UK and overseas, I appreciate:

  •  Client needs – the quick, painless and economical resolution of disputes, without losing business partners.
  •  Lawyers’ needs – an independent and impartial arbitrator with focus on efficiency, from a time perspective, as well as costs.

As arbitrator,
I am objective and impartial, firm but fair. I strive for efficiency in the arbitration process and timely publication of awards. I have experience of both ad hoc and institutional arbitration. I am conscious of the need for recognition and enforcement of awards across borders.

As mediator, I strive to facilitate acceptable solutions that enable the parties to move on, with continued relations where possible. It is a challenge to enable fruitful discussions rather than repetition of bargaining positions. I have trained in Norway and can offer an innovative approach to resolving disputes.

I accept appointments worldwide and am willing to travel.
