Tanzania’s Juvenalis Ngowi is one of six new members at Arbitra, the new management service for arbitrators and mediators, whose reach now stretches across Africa, UK, the Middle East, Latin America and Asia-Pacific regions.
The new members – James Bridgman SC, William Frain-Bell, Brian Kotick, Adrian Lifely, Juvenalis Ngowi and Randi Ayman – add further depth to Arbitra’s 18 founding members, who joined in July 2021. They are recognised in their fields and jurisdictions as offering best-in-class arbitral services.
The latest arrivals include younger arbitrators who wish to resolve disputes separately from their work as counsel, as well as those seeking to focus solely on their careers as experienced arbitrators or tribunal secretaries.
Ngowi, is an international arbitrator based in Tanzania, and the founder of Dentons EALC East African Law Chambers (formerly East African Law Chambers). He heads the dispute resolution and litigation practice, having previously worked in the public and private sectors and at a leading international law firm. With 20 years’ experience, he has become one of Tanzania’s leading dispute lawyers, having dealt with some very complex and high-value matters.
Arbitra’s chief executive, Owen Lawrence, eagerly welcomed the six new members who have added to the breadth and depth of their increasingly global and diverse membership. “We will enable them to do what they do best – resolving disputes – while we do the rest, administering and servicing their work across a wider range of arbitral destinations, with added depth, drive, and determination,” he said.
The firm now offers businesses an increased range of experienced neutrals from which lawyers can select the best-suited tribunal to resolve their disputes, drawn from a broader and more diverse pool of arbitrators and mediators.
“We understand our members’ experience, skills, style, and legal expertise,” Lawrence added, “and help clients select the individual best able to resolve their disputes.”
Arbitra provides professional support services to members, allowing them to focus purely on dispute resolution. It offers a conflict-free membership-based structure that provides a full range of practice management, consultancy, and administrative services.
