We are delighted to announce that Dr Paul Chiy, the Principal of De Jure Chambers, has been admitted as Fellow by the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators (CIArb).
Fellowship is the highest grade of CIArb membership, and it is awarded to members who have demonstrated an excellent standard of work in dispute avoidance and resolution, as well as a fierce commitment to professionalism and integrity. Dr Chiy has been named Fellow in recognition of his sixteen years’ experience working in a lead or solo capacity in Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR), work which includes settlement agreements, the management of proceedings, and the attendance of hearings that have resulted in the publication of a reasoned award or decision. The admission also endorses Dr Chiy’s experience writing mediation agreements, heads of agreements, and memorandums of understanding.
The CIArb was founded on 1st March 1915 and was granted a royal charter by Queen Elizabeth II in 1979. While it is based in the UK, the CIArb is a truly global enterprise, with 17,000 members across 149 different countries, all supported by a network of 42 branches. The CIArb is the world’s leading centre of excellence for the practice and profession of ADR. It acts as a global hub for practitioners, policy makers, academics, and business people to support the promotion, facilitation, and development of all ADR methods.
