As a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators I have acted as Arbitrator on a number of matters, including:

  • Final account dispute involving contested valuation and defects counterclaim on the conversion of a stately home into a luxury resort hotel, parties requested a non-binding “Conciliation” approach, successfully resolved.
