Andrew G Moran QC is an independent, full-time, international commercial arbitrator, with over a quarter of a century’s experience as arbitrator and judge, in the determination of an extremely wide range of commercial and maritime disputes.

His primary office and base is at The Arbitration Chambers of Singapore in Maxwell Chambers; but he also has bases from which he is able to arbitrate in the UK (London), and Continental Europe (Paris and Geneva). He was in practice for over 40 years as Counsel (nearly 25 years as Queen’s Counsel) and in that role he led teams of lawyers in conducting many complex commercial, civil and maritime cases.

Andrew is in much demand as a speaker at International Arbitration Events. In recent times, he has lectured in company with other leading arbitrators and arbitration practitioners at the Asia Pacific Regional Arbitrators Conference, at many Singapore Chamber of Maritime Arbitration Events in Singapore and Dubai, at an ICC Conference in Mumbai and at the Asian International Arbitration Centre ADR Week in Kuala Lumpur and also participated at numerous venues and arbitration events including Hong Kong Arbitration Week, ICC Asia Conferences, Global Arbitration Review Live Events, SIAC Congresses, ICCA Sydney 2018 and LCIA conferences and events.

Andrew is a Fellow of the Singapore Institute of Arbitrators and Fellow of the Hong Kong Institute of Arbitrators.

As part of Andrew’s extensive dispute resolution practice he has developed an expertise in Neutral Evaluation and Neutral Evaluative Mediation both on documents and with parties present. He has undertaken three such cases this year. Within such cases Andrew will often be asked to perform a binding or non-binding neutral evaluation in which he is asked to indicate or make findings of fact and law and predict the outcome of the massive hearing in prospect at a fraction of the cost, thus reducing the costs for all those involved.
