Representing clients in arbitration and mediations has always been part of his legal practice. JJs legal career spanning over 40 years has made him an ideal candidate to act as the arbitrator or mediator of international and domestic disputes in transportation and commercial matters. In 2002, JJ gave up acting as counsel to maritime and transportation related industries in order to act as a neutral arbitrator or mediator of disputes affecting those industries. He has conducted multi-party complex arbitrations as the sole arbitrator, the chair or panel member of three-person panels in international and domestic commercial arbitration disputes under various arbitration rules. These disputes have included contractual and insurance issues relating to the charter, construction, damage to, repair, purchase or handling of vessels, their cargoes and equipment, as well as rail and road usage agreements.
In 2012, JJ was admitted as a Fellow of Chartered Institute of Arbitrators (London). He has been an arbitrating member of the Vancouver Maritime Arbitration Association since 2002, and is an arbitrating member of the Vancouver International Commercial Arbitration Centre (international, domestic and arbitration application panels), the International Chamber of Commerce (Canada), the Canadian Transportation Agency and the Sport Dispute Resolution Centre Canada.
JJ has acted as a guest arbitrator for the Willem C. Vis International Arbitration Moots in Hong Kong (2013), Vienna (2014) and for the CIETAC Cup moots in Beijing (2019) and online (2020). JJ has been a frequent speaker at seminars in Vancouver, and a guest speaker at international arbitration and mediation conferences and seminars in Hong Kong (2015), Shanghai and Beijing (2016), Copenhagen (2017), Xiamen (2018), Beijing and Ningbo (2019), Rio de Janeiro (2020) and online in Hainan and Nairobi (2020).
