Other relevant Mediation Experience

A summary of my mediation experience is as follows: I have practiced full-time in mediation for some 32 years, being amongst the founders of commercial mediation practice in the UK. I have conducted approximately 2,000 mediations across almost every field of law and business, and with parties from over 50 countries. I am amongst the most experienced investor/state mediators in the world, with an additional vast experience of mediating other disputes to which governments are also party.

I have been named Global Mediator of the Year four times (2023, 2022, 2019 and 2014) by Who’s Who Legal, and been ranked by them as a Global Elite Thought Leader in Mediation every year. I am consistently ranked as a/the leading international mediator every year – for example International Mediation Lawyer of the Year (UK – Leaders in Law 2020 Global Awards), Alternative Dispute Resolution Lawyer of the Year - United Kingdom (Global 100 – 2024 Awards), International Mediation - Mediator of the Year in England (2023 2023 Lawyer Network Annual Awards). I have also been ranked in the top tier of UK mediators every year by the independent directories (Whos’ Who Legal, Legal 500, and Chambers).

I have acted as adviser on mediation to numerous governments (eg Russia, Turkey, Ukraine, Slovakia, Bulgaria) as well as to the UN and the EU. I formally represented the UK government at the UNCITRAL negotiations to produce the UNITRAL Model Law on Commercial Conciliation (later renamed Mediation).

I have trained mediators all over the world (initially as a founding member of the CEDR training faculty, and then since 2002 as an independent trainer). I have also conducted advanced mediator training for experienced mediators around the world. I mentor mediators from around the world in a structured, formal process of mentorship.

From 1991-2002 I was the director of CEDR’s mediation practice, managing and developing the entire mediation function there. I am a regular speaker on the international mediation circuit, and author of a leading text book on ADR (the ADR Practice Guide: Commercial Dispute Resolution, published Tottel 3rd Edition 2007) and a contributing author to “Mediators on Mediation” published Tottel 2005. I am the editor of the Kluwer Mediation Blog, a leading international blog site for mediation. Further details of the above can be provided on request.
