The seminar on “Focus on Commodities, Minerals and Energy Arbitration was held on 26 July 2018 at The Central (Clarke Quay). The opening remarks were given by Mr Andrew Pullen, a seasoned barrister at Fountain Court Chambers. This was followed by a panel discussion by Mr Joseph Lopez, Partner in Joseph Lopez LLC, and Mr Ben Lawson, Chief Operating Officer of PT. Sanaman Coal International.
The panel discussion was extremely insightful for practitioners and clients alike. Mr Lopez and Mr Lawson both boast an impressive CV with vast experience in the coal and mining industry, and are extremely knowledgeable in their respective practices. They were thus able to provide the audience with invaluable practical pointers on the issues frequently faced in commodities, minerals and energy arbitrations. The panellists’ use of practical illustrations was also extremely helpful in helping to elucidate more complex points.
The seminar ended with a very interactive Q&A session, during which members of the audience discussed their experiences and difficulties encountered in such arbitrations. In sum, it was an extremely informative and insightful talk put up by SiArb.
