Mediating commercial disputes since 1997
In New Zealand, United Kingdom and the Asia Pacific
good commercial mediators...
settle 80%+ of their cases
respect and protect the positions of all participants
do not interfere with the trial process
… and somehow manage to help settle cases without leaving a bad taste in anyone’s mouth
My aim is to conduct mediations in a way that complements the litigation process and to be known as a proactive mediator who adds value to the negotiation process able to connect and assist unyielding parties to settle the most difficult and contentious of cases – and to never give up

Geoff Sharp was a co-mediator in a very sensitive mediation involving two sovereign states. He handled the mediation with remarkable skill and sensitivity and quickly gained the trust and confidence of my clients. I would not hesitate to recommend as in the first rank of mediators practising in London.Senior Counsel
