Civil / commercial mediation

Our panel mediators deal with a broad range of civil and commercial disputes, large and small. They come from a variety of backgrounds, including law, business, IT, human resources, arts and finance.

Mediators generally take the view that it is not necessary for your mediator to be a lawyer, still less an expert in a particular area of law. Our mediators are specialists in the art of mediation, which involves the dynamics of how people act and react in disputes, whatever the subject-matter.

We can however provide specialists in particular fields where required, perhaps to ensure that the mediator and the parties or their lawyers are speaking the same language, as it were, or where the mediator’s familiarity with a particular industry might be helpful.

"Strong music industry experience and established entrepreneur and founder."


Alexander Apponyi, Investment Banker

"I had a pre-conceived idea that mediation would resemble marriage guidance but you reassured me. You explained clearly how it would work and what would be involved. I found the mediation incredibly useful and worthwhile. It totally solved the problems I was having and gave me a better understanding of my colleague's viewpoint and concerns. I was delighted and slightly amazed that it worked so well."
