Fundamental Principles

Independence and Impartiality

As a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators, London, Ahsan is bound to be totally independent and impartial in all matters referred to him for arbitration.

In view of the fact that Ahsan is the Global Senior & Managing Partner of RIAA Barker Gillette, he will not be able to act as an arbitrator in any matter of any client of any of the law offices of RIAA Barker Gillette. Ahsan is beholden to no firm, special interest or institution. He will always strive to make rulings strictly in accordance with the underlying contract, black letter law and the evidence that has been presented by the parties.

During more than four decades of practice as both counsel and arbitrator, he is well aware that some arbitrators are motivated by concerns that are unrelated to the merits of the dispute and has seen some arbitration awards rendered that ignore the basic terms of contracts and the factual evidence that has been submitted.

Ahsan is also well aware of tactics that may be used to upset the efficiency of arbitration proceedings, and has developed detailed protocols addressing the best ways to avoid them.

Convenient Schedules

Ahsan is extremely flexible in scheduling virtual hearings at any time mutually convenient to the parties.

Virtual Arbitration Hearings

All hearings are held virtually.

Efficient Arbitral Proceedings

Ahsan will ensure efficient and expeditious arbitral proceedings, ensuring that the final award is delivered no later than 90 days from the date of referral.

Cost-Effective Arbitrator Fees

The fee payable to Ahsan as arbitrator is always left to be determined by the parties

Strict Confidentiality

All matters referred to Ahsan for arbitration will be treated with utmost confidence.
