I am a Solicitor of England and Wales besides being a Member of the High Court Bar of Pakistan. I was nominated to the panel of arbitrators of ICSID by Pakistan in 2018 and is presently serving as a member of an Ad Hoc Committee of ICSID in relation to annulment proceedings in a dispute between a British national and State of Sri Lanka. I have extensive experience and training in ADR, mediation, negotiation, and arbitrations from most prestigious universities and organizations.
