About Me

I’m a full-time Lawyer-Neutral dedicated to the resolution of conflict.

Alistair is one of the uk’s most popular mediators. With well over 750 mediations to his name, alistair is consistently ranked in the top tiers of legal 500 (including the hall of fame), chambers and partners and the international who’s who of commercial mediators.

With over 30 years experience in dispute resolution at the highest level, alistair trained as a mediator in 2006 and built his practice alongside his legal work – initially as a solicitor with a major international law firm and latterly a barrister. Coming from a background in all types of commercial, insurance and property disputes, for the majority of his legal career alistair specialised in construction and insurance disputes. He has represented developers, contractors, construction professionals and their insurers in some of the biggest and most complex disputes in the uk – in the courts, arbitration, adjudication and mediation.

Alistair left legal practice in 2014 to work as a full-time mediator and has since developed one of the busiest practices in the uk. With a settlement rate well above the industry average, his straight talking, imaginative style, his professionalism and his willingness to go the extra mile have led to resolution of all types of civil and commercial disputes, from modest claims to complex multi-party cases up to £100 million. Alistair is valued for his attention to detail, his ability to focus minds on negotiation rather than attrition and for his good humour (a much-underrated quality in mediation!).

Like all top mediators, alistair has very extensive experience of online mediations which continue to be popular, particularly where there is an international element.

Alistair is available to work anywhere. Based in london and the south west, alistair mediates nationally, internationally and online.
