John is a Civil and Commercial Dispute Mediator.
John was a Partner in Addleshaw Goddard LLP, one of the UK’s leading commercial law firms, for over 25 years. Throughout this period he was a specialist litigation solicitor, advising across a range of commercial and professional disputes, representing clients in the High Court, Court of Appeal and House of Lords (now Supreme Court), in tribunals and in both domestic and international arbitrations and in numerous mediations. For many years John was rated in both the Legal 500 and Chambers & Partners legal directories as a leading individual in his field, recently in Chambers as the "Eminent Practitioner" in the region.
Having retired as a Partner in the firm in 2017, John now works as a Mediator. He brings a wealth of experience of working with organisations and individuals to resolve their disputes through out-of-Court settlements. John’s approach to Mediation is to prepare thoroughly in advance, to gain a good understanding of the interests and needs of the parties and to work with determination on the day to help steer the parties through to a successful resolution.
As a measure of his success, over the last year in excess of 80% of the disputes mediated by John have been resolved successfully, either on the day of the mediation itself or within a short period afterwards.
John is a Civil Mediation Council registered Mediator, an ADR Group Accredited Civil & Commercial Mediator and is a Panel Mediator with the Association of Northern Mediators. He is also a member of the Professional Negligence Lawyers’ Association.
