William is frequently instructed to represent and advise clients at mediation, in a wide range of disputes covering his areas of practice. He is commended particularly for the persuasion and tactical care of opening position statements and speeches, and for his guidance on changing circumstances and arguments, the inclusion of matters of compromise outside the ambit of the proceedings and an adaptability in testing the case of opponents whilst seeking common ground.
William is also involved in questions of determination by experts, international and domestic arbitration, advising on the enforceability and construction of arbitration agreements, as well as the process of arbitration itself and its relationship with any court proceedings (from interim remedies, stays, appointment and replacement of arbitrators, enforcement and appeals).
