Clive Aston
Arbitrator
Clive Aston has more than 30 years’ experience of maritime arbitration and dispute resolution

In 1988 Clive established his own consultancy and for the next 20 years worked for a wide range of clients, focussing in particular on cases bound for arbitration. 

Clive also started accepting appointments as arbitrator in 1988 and has since then been appointed in literally thousands of cases.

Clive was President of the LMAA from 2014-2017 and remains a committee member today.
