In Place of Strife mediators rise to the top in Legal 500

Wednesday, 5th October 2011

Jon Lang rises to the top tier in the latest edition of Legal 500, just published. He gets the following accolade:

The ‘highly effective’, ‘excellent, hardworking and intelligentJon Lang climbs a tier on the back of some very good feedback from clients, who praise him as ‘not afraid to engage and challenge views or strategies in a constructive manner’, and ‘always working extremely hard to exhaust every avenue to reach an agreement’. ‘His patience and good humour can enable even the most intractable disputes to be resolved, and he goes the extra mile in pursuing settlement.’ While he covers all manner of mediations, clients note that his background as an IP partner at White & Case LLP makes him a very good choice for IP mediations.

Mark Jackson-Stops, Head of Chambers at In Place of Strife, is highly recommended, and for many ‘a starting point when looking to appoint or recommend a mediator’. As one satisfied client reports: ‘Without exception, he has quickly got to grips with the issues and gained the trust and respect of all the parties to the dispute, enabling him to calmly but forcefully challenge their often entrenched views and to achieve settlement on terms which each party can live with, but which often exceed their expectations at the start of a mediation’. He is also praised for ‘always following up with the parties, to ensure that where settlement is possible, it is achieved’.

Amanda Bucklow is praised for her ‘innovative and refreshing style’; ‘she is very engaging and unstuffy, and probably her greatest strength is her ability to build a rapport and empathy with the clients’.

The ‘very goodLawrence Kershen QC is ‘particularly impressive’. He is regularly involved in high-end mediations, ranging from defamation disputes, to finance, IP, engineering and professional negligence matters.One of the founding fathers of mediation’,

David Richbell has ‘all the qualities necessary for a good mediator: he is modest, highly experienced and utterly committed to helping the parties find resolution’. He is considered one of the go-to mediators for construction disputes.
