The London Chamber of Arbitration has recently announced a newly formed panel of arbitrators, consisting of 19 former members of the judiciary and current senior practitioners. The highly experienced panel includes two members of Essex Court Chambers, Roderick Cordara QC and David Scorey QC.
The LCCI is London’s largest independent networking and business support organisation. Traditionally, it played a major role in the provision of arbitration facilities for its members and those who had inserted appropriate arbitration clauses in their contracts. The formation of this panel therefore resurrects a historical role for the LCCI.
Roderick’s arbitration practice covers both international commercial and international tax issues. He has acted as advocate and arbitrator most frequently in the energy and shipping sectors. He also has wide experience in contractual disputes of all kinds, especially in connection with contract termination issues. He is qualified to practice in Australia and before the Singapore International Commercial Court.
Taking silk in 2015, David has particular expertise in insurance and reinsurance arbitrations, particularly concerning the Bermuda Form. He has acted in a substantial range of arbitrations before domestic and international tribunals, including ICC, LMAA, LCIA, UNCITRAL, AAA and ad hoc arbitrations. David is a member of the ARIAS(UK) Panel of Arbitrators.
