The CIArb is the the world’s leading qualifications and professional body for dispute avoidance and dispute management. Fellow is the highest membership level and requires a minimum of ten years’ experience in arbitration, and first-hand involvement in settlement agreements, the management of proceedings and attending hearings that have resulted in the publication of a reasoned award or decision.
Christian is among the leading commercial litigators at the Guernsey Bar with a particular expertise in contentious trust related matters and corporate disputes.
He has extensive experience in acting in high value disputes between trustees and beneficiaries, bank and customer/investor, commercial entities, majority/minority shareholders, against directors and within contentious liquidations.
Christian is a CEDR (Centre for Effective Dispute Resolution) accredited mediator.
Arbitration is increasingly used globally as a cost-effective, confidential and efficient alternative to court litigation for solving commercial, construction and more frequently trust disputes. The global enforceability of arbitral awards and the successful adoption of virtual technology by most arbitration institutions makes it an attractive option for resolving disputes.
