We are delighted that Simon Mehigan QC and Jeremy Phillips have successfully completed the CEDR mediation course. This means that they now join our Arbitration and Mediation Unit, led by Sir Michael Harrison, recently retired from the High Court and supported by members of Chambers who are accredited as mediators or arbitrators including Robin Purchas QC, Craig Howell Williams and Richard Glover (CEDR qualified mediators) and Richard Honey, a qualified arbitrator. Members of Chambers generally participate in mediations and arbitrations.
The Unit was created in response to the growing role for arbitration and mediation in planning, environmental and public law, an approach which has the support of the Government, PINS and many public authorities and other bodies. It has proved increasingly effective in successfully resolving disputes quickly and effectively in the public and other spheres.
Please contact the clerks to find out more about this service and the unit.
