The 2005 lecture, Litigate, Arbitrate, Mediate - Frustrate?: Breaking the Dispute Deadlock, was given by Arthur L Marriot QC. Mr Marriott challenged some of the traditional approaches to dispute resolution by focusing on strategies for commercial settlement prior to or within litigation or arbitration which emphasise reconciliation of the parties' business interests and control of cost and time.
Arthur Marriott QC is one of the world's leading arbitration lawyers. He has practised in the field of international commercial arbitration for 25 years and has extensive experience as counsel and arbitrator in all forms of international commercial arbitration and mediation throughout the world, including oil and gas, civil engineering, construction, technology, joint venture and investment treaty disputes.
Mr Marriott was the first English solicitor ever to be appointed as Queen's Counsel. He was also a principal proponent of the reform of English legislation governing arbitration, which resulted in the passage of the Arbitration Act 1996. Mr Marriott has published and spoken widely on the subjects of international arbitration and ADR.
