The latest edition of Global Arbitration Review (GAR) gives a glowing report on Sir David Williams’ and Derek Firth’s New Year’s honours.

GAR is an influential international publication, read by all involved in arbitration the world over. In talking to GAR, I commented:

Sir David has put arbitration on the world map – and New Zealand arbitrators along with it.

The GAR article underlines the increasing importance of international arbitration, and  Sir David’s central role in its development.
