Any party in an arbitration for which David Mandel is proposed as arbitrator is requested to promptly disclose any facts or circumstances considered relevant to his impartiality or independence as soon as that information is reasonably available and, for that purpose, to undertake a reasonable continuing search of publicly available information promptly after learning of his prospective appointment as arbitrator.

David Mandel attends many conferences and events and is a member of numerous organizations; he does not maintain records of fellow members, speakers or participants, nor does he monitor contact lists on LinkedIn or other similar media.  Tangential connections in such contexts should not be considered to be relationships that might affect impartiality or independence in the eyes of a reasonable third party.
