Gregg's guest this week is Tope Adeyemi, a Barrister and Arbitrator practising from 33 Bedford Row Chambers in London. Tope is dual qualified and was called to the bars of England & Wales in 2008 and Nigeria in 2019. She is a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators and a member of its London Branch Committee, and is regularly appointed to act as sole arbitrator in disputes.
In this episode Gregg & Tope discuss diversity and accessibility in arbitration, pointing to lessons arbitration can learn from the theatre (especially from Gregg's number one play of all time - Prima Facie starring Jodie Comer). They talk about international arbitration and the opportunity the Hunt ADR Arbitrator Experience Programme can give to aspiring arbitrators, and finish with the importance of being kind and not holding a grudge (where possible!).
