    Vale Colin Wall  
    The Society is saddened by the news that SCLHK member Colin Wall passed away on 16 July 2015.

Colin was very active in the construction law field as a well known arbitrator and mediator, who worked full time as a dispute resolver and trainer for many years.

Colin was the Managing Director and founder of Commercial, Mediation & Arbitration Services Ltd, Co-President of the UIA Forum of Mediation Centres, past Chairman of the Hong Kong Mediation Council, an Honorary Professor at the University of Hong Kong and a distinguished member of several mediation and arbitration panels. He was also a past President, past East Asia Regional Trustee and former Chairman of the Hong Kong Branch of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators.

Colin will be sadly missed by his many friends and colleagues in the construction law community in Hong Kong and around the world. Our thoughts are with his family.
