Professor Mark D Cato

It is with great sadness that I must report that Mark D Cato died on 12 November 2012 aged 78. Mark will be remembered with great fondness by many of us, as arbitrator. Mark was a Chartered Surveyor by discipline and had worked in many countries of the world and was at one time the youngest partner of then Horace W Langdon & Every. He changed careers in his late 40′s to become a Chartered Arbitrator. To this end, in his late 50′s he took a Masters Degree at Kings College London and practiced and lectured on dispute resolution for 25 years. He was made an Adjunct Professor of Law at the China University of Political Law and Science in Beijing in 2001 where he has taught. In 2002, he was made a visiting professor at Shandong University in Jinaan in Shandong province. He has written four books on his subject. His best-known being The Sanctuary House Case. Mark was well renowned as Founder President of The Arbitration Club (1990) with around 800 plus members in 10 branches - two overseas.

Mark was a keen sportsman and games player having achieved modest success in badminton, squash, tennis, rugby, polo, skiing, water skiing and golf. He was the first joint world Monopoly champion (1972)! To Julian Critchlow, Jon Miller and I he was our pupil master in the 1990’s and will be greatly missed. Our thoughts are with his wife Alice and family.
