Brief Curriculum Vitae

Head and shoulders picture of Trevor Harrison

Trevor Harrison, LLB MCIArb, practises as a maritime arbitrator and mediator and occasional consultant, with particular expertise in bunkering.  He was called to the Bar over 30 years ago and was previously Head of Legal at bunker fuel supplier Tramp Oil & Marine.  Earlier career experience included practice at the English Bar, working for a P&I club and a firm of marine consultants. From August 2011 until April 2013 Trevor acted as part-time Chief Executive of IBIA, whilst the association sought a permanent candidate.

Bodies and Panels
He is a member of the Bar of England and Wales, the Baltic Exchange, a Member of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators (MCIArb), an Aspiring Full Member of the London Maritime Arbitrators Association (LMAA), on the Singapore Chamber of Maritime Arbitration (SCMA) Panel of Arbitrators, a Centre for Dispute Resolutions (CEDR) accredited mediator, on the Baltic Exchange-LMAA Mediator Panel, a member of the Baltic Exchange’s Panel of Experts and a director of the International Bunker Industry Association (IBIA). He was responsible for devising IBIA’s ‘Rapid Resolution’ fixed-cost mediation and arbitration schemes.

Arbitration and mediation experience includes charterparty disputes, bunker disputes and GA and piracy cases; he is particularly interested in technical problems. Trevor has many years’ experience of drafting and negotiating contracts, particularly standard trading terms, and making and defending a wide range of maritime claims, including instigating arrest proceedings in many different jurisdictions.

Publications, Training and Educating
As well as arbitrating and mediating, Trevor speaks regularly on maritime matters and dispute resolution. His first book, Legal Issues in Bunkering, was published in 2011 by Petrospot. He also wrote the module on the Sale and Purchase of Bunkers for the Lloyd’s Maritime Academy (LMA) Certificate in Practical Bunker Management and is Course Director for the LMA Certificate in Marine Claims. Recent masterclasses in Singapore and Hong Kong have covered arbitration, mediation, bunker disputes and marine claims.

Other Interests
Away from the sea and the law, his interests include choral singing, community mediation and horse riding. He is also closely involved with the preserved steam railway next to his house in Sussex where he lives with his very tolerant wife, Shirley.
