Kay Linnell whilst sitting as Arbitrator has dealt with such diverse matters as the allocation of the costs of commercial damages and the allocation of charges in a transport dispute involving several city councils, disputes with housing association and tenants and served as Chairman of the Special Interest Panel of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators managed under the IDRS subsidiary for housing disrepair schemes with local councils and their tenants.

Kay’s real expertise is in dealing with private contract disputes and she has recently dealt with several involving partnership breakdowns and in particular interpretation of various partnership accounts and the valuation of businesses. In sitting as an Arbitrator the role is quite distinct from that of being an Expert because the requirement is for the Arbitrator to received the evidence given to them, weigh and evaluate it in a quasi- judicial capacity and become involved in an investigation. The Arbitrators role is inquisitorial and this is quite useful in providing a private, final and cost effective method of resolving appropriate disputes.
