Expert Determinations


Determination under an Executive Short Term Incentive Plan (STIP) for a major Financial Institution and Funds Manager and an executive director in relation to a $1million bonus and redundancy payment. The basis of calculating the bonus payment for the last two years of the STIP for several Key Reporting Areas (KRA’s) was disputed. Although the STIP required any dispute to be Arbitrated, the parties decided that Expert Determination was to be adopted to resolve their dispute. The matter was resolved by a binding determination and a revised payment within four months of appointment.



Determination of a dispute in relation to the completion accounts of a Sale and Purchase of Shares Agreement for airport ground handling operations at two major international airports and involving divisions of two major international companies, both listed on the London Stock Exchange.
