A list of appointments and enquiries is attached.



Jeffrey C. Rosenthal


During the past 25 years I have been extensively involved in dispute resolution work, acting as an arbitrator and expert witness, and as a mediator. This work has been as much of a legal nature as accountancy, and I have increased my knowledge of partnership, contract and consumer law, as well as maintaining my professional knowledge in accountancy and related financial matters.

My background as the principal of my own accountancy practice, understanding of business and consumer issues, sprinkled with a good measure of common sense, has been of considerable value in dealing with a wide range of problems.

My earlier work as a practising accountant and consultant covered a wide range of business activities and trade association work, as well the usual functions associated with accounting practices in the Small to Medium sized Enterprise field (SME's). I held an Insolvency Licence until the end of 1998, and was a Registered Auditor until 1999.

My consultancy activities included the independent valuation of businesses; advising on business mergers and break up; preparing prospectuses and negotiating the sale of businesses; advising vendors on the sales of minority interests; advising the purchasers in a management buy out; a substantial individual voluntary arrangement; negotiating finance facilities for numerous clients; assisting clients in resolving a wide range of disputes.

After becoming a Fellow of The Chartered Institute of Arbitrators in 1984, I was admitted to the Register of Experienced Arbitrators in 1998. I am now a CIArb tutor and examiner, and a panel member of the Business Arbitration Scheme.

My commercial Arbitration and Expert Determination appointments over many years include a wide range of partnership dissolution disputes for various professional and trading activities; a variety of contractual disputes; business sale and purchase consideration; investment advice and mortgage and finance agreement disputes. I am a member of the Dispute Resolutions Panels of ACCA and ICAEW. I determine costs when required.

I was admitted as a practising Member of The Academy of Experts in August 1994. Expert Witness appointments include reports for claimants in loss of profit disputes; partnership disputes; business and share valuations; professional negligence and negligent investment advice claims. I have also acted as a Single Joint Expert.

I became a Centre for Effective Dispute Resolution (CEDR) accredited mediator in 2000, and am now a member of the mediation and arbitration panels of Chartered Institute of Arbitrators. I have undertaken a considerable number of commercial and consumer mediation appointments. 9 of the last 10 have been successful.



My charging rate for dispute resolution appointments varies according to the nature and size of the dispute. My Terms and Conditions for appointments are shown on the back page. Separate schedules of Terms and Conditions are available for Arbitration and Mediation appointments.
