As Registrar and Deputy Director General of the LCIA in 2008 – 2012, he oversaw the administration of more than a thousand commercial arbitrations and assisted with a review of its Arbitration Rules. He subsequently spent two years at Thomas Miller Legal, assessing and managing a wide range of commercial and investment claims on behalf of insurers and funders. Returning to private practice in 2015, he spent a year in Stephenson Harwood’s International Arbitration group where he assisted on ICC and LCIA arbitrations, principally oil and gas disputes.

John drafted briefings on Parliamentary Committee meetings and worked on the implementation of the Commission’s Work Programme as well as advising on the legislative implications of Brexit. He also contributed to the drafting of the Code of Conduct for Commissioners.
Richard is a barrister with over 10 years’ experience in the civil courts in England and Wales. He qualified following pupillage at 13 King’s Bench Walk chambers, where he had a broad civil common law practice dealing primarily with personal injury, debt recovery and personal/corporate insolvency. In 2014 he moved to 42 Bedford Row chambers where his practice became more focused on landlord and tenant matters and commercial contract disputes.
 

Through extensive exposure to the courts on a nearly daily basis he has developed an in-depth understanding of the practical application of the CPR in day-to-day litigation, both in interim hearings and substantive trials.
