In the emerging field of international investment law, there are few consulting firms with experience in third-party investment dispute resolution that are not affected by conflict of interest of some kind. We offer services as arbitrators. Since we are not a law firm, we do not have the typical conflict of interest most practicing lawyers of law firms face when sitting in a panel dealing with an issue one day and defend a legal argument on behalf of a client related to the same issue the next day. Our consultants are some of the leaders in this new field. Our president has completed doctoral studies in foreign investment law at the University of Edinburgh and has lectured internationally and published in international law journals. He is an arbitrator before the International Center for Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID) and the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), a member of the American Arbitration Association International Panel, and listed in the ICC Arbitrator Database. He is an associate Editor of Transnational Dispute Management, and Member of the Washington, DC Bar International Dispute Resolution Committee Working Group on Transparency/Accountability in Investment Treaty Arbitration.
