Some of these disputes comprise claims of up to USD 65 million. He spent a valuable year working in-house at a large international oil and gas firm where he obtained a strong grounding and appreciation of the complex legal, technical and commercial realities of cross-border construction and commercial disputes.

“it is not from the benevolence of the businessman, the breadwinner or the boss that we expect to have work – but from their regard to our ability to solve problems while having one foot in the Courts and the other foot in the Business Park or the Construction Yard.”
