In Place of Strife

The Mediation Chambers

IN PLACE OF STRIFE MEMBERS WIN HIGH RATINGS IN CHAMBERS GUIDE, 2009

Friday, 21st November 2008

Chambers Guide to the Legal Profession 2009, gives high praise to members of In Place of Strife, The Mediation Chambers. Most members are listed as Leaders in Mediation.Andrew Paton is "a dynamic and innovative mediator" and his "particular strength is in coming up with ideas and getting the parties working together quickly. He is very thorough, always immaculately prepared and very pleasant to deal with."Mark Jackson-Stops is "clearly the best of the non-lawyer mediators", and is "highly rated by lawyers in the field, who feel that he is often underrated because of his background." As one peer points out, "as a non-lawyer he brings a wholly different perspective to mediation and is enormously effective".Lawrence Kershen QC is highly regarded by his peers and is considered "an outstanding mediator and highly experienced litigator who brings an air of seniority to the mediation table, whilst retaining the ability to put a reassuring arm around his clients".Jon Lang is regarded by many observers as "a cut above the rest" and mediates on a wide variety of commercial and IP disputes, both in the UK and abroad.Amanda Bucklow is widely praised for her impressive capability in regulated infrastructure sectors such as rail and telecoms, in which she is considered "ahead of the pack", and in employment disputes. Interviewees lauded her as "a Renaissance woman, hugely skilled with a disarming and matter-of-fact manner, and an enormous background knowledge." They highlighted her deft handling of highly sensitive and complex mediations, as well as her contribution to the 'industry thought process' through papers and conference appearances.Phillip Howell-Richardson is "one of the mediation masters", and is known for having "a delightfully mild manner that is extremely client-friendly".Charles Middleton-Smith is regarded as a "charming mediator" who "combines a wonderful sense of humour with a firmness that allows people to take him seriously". He is highly qualified in mediations relating to complex commercial, IP and media and entertainment issues. Interviewees note that his success is in part due to the "calm approach he adopts to dispute resolution."David Richbell is noted as "original mentor for many mediators - a brilliant lecturer, trainer and author".Beverly-Ann Rogers has an excellent understanding of the law but it is the "empathy she displays as a mediator" that has most impressed"."The name that keeps coming up right now is Quentin Smith". He is described as "a good operator when it comes to dispute resolution".Elizabeth Birch is "well respected on the mediation scene" and has "a sensible approach".Roger Tabakin "was one of the first accountants to undertake commercial mediations in the UK and as a result possesses the necessary skills to fully understand his clients needs. Tabakin has also taken on dispute resolutions in other practice areas, including professional negligence, IP and M&A".
