Who's Who Legal Arbitration: Lawyers

Alan Redfern has worked as an international arbitrator since leaving the international law firm Freshfields (where he was the senior litigation partner) and joining the Chambers of Lord Grabiner QC at One Essex Court, Temple, London.

He is a leading authority on international arbitration and has acted as chairman, sole arbitrator or party-nominated arbitrator in a wide variety of cases.

Alan Redfern is experienced in the conduct of ad hoc arbitrations, as well as those conducted under the UNCITRAL Arbitration Rules and under the leading arbitral regimes, including ICC, LCIA, UNCITRAL, AAA and ICDR. These arbitrations have included banking, insurance and reinsurance claims; research, development and distribution claims; international joint venture agreements; damage claims in different areas of activity, including plant supply, computer software, telecommunications and financing; construction projects; oil and gas industry claims, both onshore and offshore; and defence contracts. Alan Redfern has also given expert evidence in matters relating to international arbitration.

He co-authored the standard textbook on international arbitration, now published by Oxford University Press, as Redfern and Hunter on International Arbitration (sixth edition) and he devised the “Redfern Schedule” which is now used worldwide as an effective tool for dealing with disputed requests for the production of documents.

WWL says: Alan Redfern is "a brilliant arbitrator who has a real gift for the craft".
