I particularly liked the way that he starts the mediation – it is very useful to know what to expect from him, in terms of his approach and how he might challenge the parties.

Mediation in April 2020

“Having tried a few Alistair still rates as the best in my view.

He is off-piste creative, has the knack of cutting his cloth to the particular case in front of him and manages to identify the pinch points quickly i.e. I have been to a lot of mediations where the mediator has one default mode and setting, and sometimes that default mode and setting does not suit or fit the dispute, the parties or indeed the overall environment.

I would also add that the clients were genuinely amazed that Alistair had (1) read all the papers and (2) had a working grasp of the relatively niche and complex business / marketplace that they were in.”
