My support to you is based on many years of experience in contract & claim management, project management and supply chain management in international companies. Having worked in various senior management positions, I have extensive practice in the resolution of disputes in an international context, including participation in arbitrations. I have successfully handled many complex negotiations as a conflict party, both as a client and as a contractor or supplier. Therefore, I know very well the perspective, motivation and pressure of parties in a business dispute. I am a CEDR Accredited Mediator and have mediation experience both as a mediator and as a conflict party. See here for my conflict management profile.
