Complementing my practice, I have a strong interest in alternative dispute resolution, and in particular, international commercial arbitration. With chambers in Sydney and London and possessing specialised knowledge and expertise in commercial, maritime and building and construction disputes, I have appeared in local and overseas jurisdictions, including Sydney, Hong Kong, London, Dubai and Frankfurt, in commercial arbitrations and mediations as counsel, arbitrator and mediator, affording me a true global perspective. I have provided complex advice to multi-national insurers as well as insureds, and have appeared in mediations, arbitrations and Court in matters regarding coverage, construction of policies, liability and subrogation. The broad range of classes of insurance in which I have acted encompass construction (including professional negligence of engineers, architects and quantity surveyors), maritime (including cargo), infrastructure (including energy), product liability and trade credit risk. I am a Fellow of the Australian Centre for International Commercial Arbitration (ACICA); member of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators, a BarADR approved arbitrator of the NSW Bar Association. I am also an accredited mediator under the Australian National Mediator Accreditation Standards and a court-appointed mediator of the Supreme and District Courts of New South Wales. In 2015 I was awarded the Australian Arbitration Barrister of the Year in the Lawyer Monthly Legal Awards and in 2018 was selected by my peers for inclusion in Best Lawyers in Australia for my work in Product Liability Litigation.
