Retired TCC Judge Sir Vivian Ramsey speaking at CIArb NW dinner – 6 November

Vivian Ramsey retired on 2 November and, last night, reminisced on some of his years at the Bar and in the Judiciary.

Speaking at the Chartered Institute of Chartered Institute of Arbitrators NW annual dinner in Manchester he outlined his hopes that domestic arbitration would regain popularity. Citing the uncertainties of adjudication and litigation as leading some parties to mediation, he suggested that “proper and proportionate arbitration” could make a recovery.  He commented that arbitration could learn from litigation in areas such as the control of (sometimes voluminous) oral evidence.

100 people attended the dinner. Further information on CIArb NW events can be found here –
