Full Profile

Tara has significant experience of the main arbitral forums, including the LCIA, ICC, and SIAC as well as the specialist trade institutes such as LMAA, GAFTA, FOSFA, TNA, Waren Verein and the BCA.

Tara, who brings many years of working with major steel and raw materials traders, as well as soft commodities producers, is described as going "beyond advising on the law – an active problem solver" and as "one to watch" (Legal 500, 2013).  Her significant experience working in-house at both a leading global steel trading organisation and at one of Europe’s largest steel producers means she understands the pressures faced by the businesses with whom she works. 

In December 2012 Tara was awarded the President's Award (Logistics) by The International Steel Trade Association.
