Dispute resolution experience
My experience with the use of Dispute Adjudication Boards in international experience work began in 1994, when I was engaged by the Legal Department of The World Bank to assist in drafting the then new provisions of the Bank’s Standard Bidding Document, “Procurement of Works”, to introduce the use of Dispute Boards, which occurred with the January 1995 edition of that document. Since then I have been continuously engaged in work related to international dispute boards, most recently Chairing several, for: the new Port d'Ehoala, Madagascar; Pitesti Bypass Project, Romania; Kunming Water Supply Project, China; Power Complex, Ghazi Barotha Hydropower Project, Pakistan; Xiaolangdi Multipurpose Dam Project, China.
