He has worked with clients throughout London and Europe, US and Latin America, Asia Pacific and Middle-East including under some of the most common arbitral institutional rules.

He takes pride in client service and understanding client needs to deliver a high standard. Sam keeps in regular contact with new and existing clients, both internationally and domestically, to ensure the same high standard of service is maintained but also improved. He also keeps a close eye on the legal market to ensure the set, services provided and its members continue to adapt and meet ever changing needs and demands of the legal industry, and its clients.
