Areas of Practice

The primary focus of my practice is on the successful resolution of international commercial disputes through alternative dispute resolution(ADR). Of the many forms of ADR practiced, I concentrate on arbitration and mediation.


Acting as Arbitrator (either as sole arbitrator or member of a panel), selected by the parties to commercial disputes either directly or through the rosters of the various international arbitral organizations, to which I belong.


Acting as mediator or third party neutral, selected by the parties to commercial disputes either directly or through the courts or though the various mediation organizations with whom I work.


This is a process where I work with clients who wish to manage internal company conflict more effectively, (existing as well as future conflict). This can either be through one-to-one coaching or by facilitating dialogue with a view to heading off in-company conflict before it materializes into litigation, arbitration or mediation.
