What I Provide
As an expert witness, I can draw on many years of experience and a large database of historical fixtures and market information. I provide independent evidence and advice on a wide range of maritime related disputes. If required, I can analyse and compare voyage estimates and financial accounts. Historical and current bunker/fuel prices are also available on request.
I have been working within the shipping industry for the last 30 years and have extensive knowledge of dry cargo chartering, vessels, shipping contracts and maritime practices. I have worked as an owner’s and charterer’s broker, a principal charterer and a shipowner.
My dry cargo knowledge spans small sized ships right through to panamax size vessels. I am actively engaged in shipping on a daily basis working within a ship broking company called Seawise Chartering Ltd. As such, I closely follow the shipping markets and current maritime topics.
I am a member of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators (MCIArb) and I serve on the Council of the Baltic Exchange Expert Witness Association (BEWA). I am a supporting member of the London Maritime Arbitrators Association (LMAA) and a member of the Singapore Chamber of Maritime Arbitration (SCMA). I also serve on the Baltic Membership Council (BMC).
