Questions and Answers:

Who's Who Legal Thought Leaders - Arbitration

Dr Moselle is an economist with extensive experience as an expert in international arbitration, including disputes related to pricing issues in long-term contracts; the assessment of damages in both commercial and investor-state disputes, with a particular focus on regulated infrastructure; and alleged breaches of competition law. Dr Moselle has provided testimony in more than 50 commercial and investment treaty arbitrations. He is particularly prominent in disputes relating to natural gas, LNG, electric power and renewable energy.

WHAT HAS YOUR EXPERIENCE AS A MANAGING DIRECTOR OF THE UK ENERGY REGULATOR OFGEM BROUGHT TO YOUR PRACTICE?

Many of the international arbitrations I work on are at the intersection of valuation and regulatory economics. Often in such cases, the claimant invested in a regulated sector and is alleging that the regulator did not do what was promised at the time of the investment. These kinds of disputes often require analysis of the regulatory issues, as well as the assessment of damages. My time at Ofgem gives me a regulatory perspective in addition to the financial one, which is very useful in that kind of dispute.

WHAT CHALLENGES ARISE IN DISPUTES IN THE ENERGY SECTOR?

The energy industry faces an incredibly wide set of challenges. Energy interacts with social and environmental concerns, security of supply issues, macroeconomics and geopolitics. For that reason, disputes in this sector can be exceptionally complex and multidimensional.

WHAT HAS BEEN THE MOST MEMORABLE CASE YOU HAVE WORKED ON IN YOUR CAREER SO FAR?

One memorable moment was when I testified at a hearing where the procedural rules allowed for counsel to question me on any public document. I was presented with a 150-page document I had never seen before, in a language I cannot read, and asked questions about it. Fortunately, I was able to quickly scan the document and found two pages in English hidden in the middle, that gave me the basis for an answer!

WHAT ATTRACTED YOU TO THE FIELD OF ECONOMICS?

Economics has always fascinated me as it integrates so many aspects of society and science. After I received my PhD in mathematics, I chose to retrain as an economist. I realised economics would allow me to use my analytical grounding to make a difference and interact with what is happening in the world.

WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE YOUNGER EXPERTS HOPING TO ONE DAY BE IN YOUR POSITION?

Intellectual curiosity and rigour are indispensable – but so is the ability to communicate clearly to a lay audience. Working with clients and parties from around the world requires cultural adaptability. Also, hone your presentation skills and always be over prepared for cross-examination.
