Independent Maritime and International Commercial Arbitrator and Mediator
Arbitrator, Mediator, Neutral Evaluator and Claims Consultant, Interactive International Inc., 2000 - Present; Vice President - Arbitration, Continental Grain Company, 1981 - 2000; Manager-Maritime Claims, Bunge Corporation, 1973 - 1981; Instructor, Stern College for Women, 1971 - 1973.

Currently serving as one of six commissioners on the Board of Commissioners of Pilots of the State of New York, 2000 – Present. The Board meets one morning a week.
Has mediated cases involving lay time, demurrage and detention of vessels and of various types of cargoes whether liquid or dry bulk. Cases of cargo damage and shortage, the construction of a sales contract, a dispute with respect to a special clause in a contract, a claim lodged by a Swiss trading company under a long-term contract for the supply of Iron Ore Concentrate from an American mine which had closed and was going bankrupt, a case involving demurrage and detention on stranded containers in China.
Mediations have involved demurrage and detention of vessels and oil cargoes, cargo damage and shortage, the construction of a sales contract, the dispute with respect to a special clause in a contract, the closing and bankruptcy of an American Iron Ore Concentrate mine under a long-term supply contract to a Swiss metal trading company, demurrage and detention of containers in China.
Attended first mediation as a party representing an International Trading Company in 1989. Mediated as advocate concerning lay time and demurrage under an FOB sales contract and a Charter Party between the seller, the buyer and the vessel owner.
I believe in helping the parties reach a mutual agreement by understanding their true position and trying to bring them together to their utmost resistance point. At the ex-parte conferences, I would try to move them towards the middle point with which, in my judgment, they should be able to live. I would work with each of them to let them vent so I truly understand their resistance point. I also believe in trying to understand any emotional aspect in their position and try to find some creative solution to help them reach a just result on the basis of the type of business they are in, perhaps with a view to future business. I would paint the consequence of their not settling there and then and convince them that it would be reasonable to settle instead of leaving without a settlement. But if all else fails, I am not unwilling to help them see the light by giving them my opinion, if I am asked to do so, and to hammer out a settlement agreement between them.

I would, of course, insist at the outset that a person with authority to settle attend the mediation and would tell them that I expect that they should honestly wish to settle the case. Sometimes, one party is obdurate and simply does not want to settle.

I would continue to try to help the parties reach a settlement after the mediation session.
