Rupert Boswall is the Chairman of RPC LLP based in London and Hong Kong. He has been an international arbitration and commercial disputes specialist for 25 years. He is more of a fox than a hedgehog -"the fox know many things; the hedgehog one big thing" (Archilocus). He is currently advising on disputes involving default in oil supply, civil fraud against a CIS bank, and a maritime delimitation dispute. He frequently mediates disputes but is concerned about a trend towards mediations failing to achieve settlements.
