John Gaffney among winners of IBA writing competition
International arbitration lawyer John Gaffney has been recognised as a winner of an International Bar Association (IBA) writing competition.
Mr Gaffney was named by the IBA’s Arb40 subcommittee as the only Irish winner of its “common heritage of the international arbitration community” competition for the most meaningful personal stories in the “how it all started” category.
In his submission, titled When you put your hand to the plough, don’t look back, Mr Gaffney describes leaving Irish legal practice behind to pursue a career in international arbitration, eventually moving to the United Arab Emirates.
All of the winning entries have been published on the IBA website.
