”My work as arbitrator is grounded on two fundamental values - patience and clarity. Patience to wait until all the arguments and evidence have been properly heard before a decision is made. Clarity so that the parties understand how the arbitral tribunal reached their decision by way of detailed reasoning in the final award."
