Profile

General Information

One of the most experienced ADR professionals in the country, Gregg is a multi award winning CMC Fellow who has mediated more than 130 times across multiple sectors. 

"Simply put, if the need arises you are my first port of call re mediation."

I am an experienced award winning mediator who first qualified in 2001.  I'm one of Europe's most experienced dispute resolution professionals, having worked in ADR since 1995 and I have mediated more than 120 civil and commercial cases. I am as at ease in person with the parties or online and have been at the forefront of the promotion of mediation and mediator training online since the COVID pandemic struck.

Parties who have used me for mediation have fed back that they find my mediation style to be professional but not officious. I enjoy mediating and helping parties to resolve their differences, and find I am able to create an atmosphere in which deals can be struck and disputes resolved in the vast majority of cases.

Mediation Experience

I have mediated at least 130 times with parties ranging from individuals to private and public companies.  My mediations have been in a wide range of sectors with claims ranging from £500 to £30m. I've co-mediated on cases with a value of up to £300m. As a professional mediator I mediate disputes on a regular basis and my experience covers wide ranging areas of civil and commercial disputes.

Mediation Style

I understand the importance of building a good relationship with parties and gaining their trust. I am relaxed and have had significant success mediating where strong personalities on either side have clashed.  This has been by building an environment in which emotions can be released without derailing chances of settlement.  Though I am relaxed and easy to get along with, I am nobody's fool and can be tough when required.

I am not a lawyer and take a very business minded pragmatic approach and I'm able to proactively assist the parties to achieve settlement.

Main Areas of Practice as a Mediator

I have mediated a wide range of cases because I'm not pigeon holed by being a specialist in one specific area. Examples of some of the sectors I have mediated in include banking and finance, business and consumer services, civil and commercial contracts, communications, construction, creative and media, employment, energy, insurance, legal services, leisure and tourism, music, partnerships, personal injury, product liability, professional negligence, property, workplace and sport.

Teaching / Mentoring / CPD

I have trained hundreds of people to be mediators both as Head of Faculty for Hunt ADR and also as member of faculty for other organisations. I've trained mediators and delivered mediation and arbitration CPD events in person in the UK, the United States, Hong Kong, Spain and Poland and online participants have come from the UK, France, Canada, Chile and South Africa. I've spoken at many international events and worked on ADR projects in 22 countries.  I'm a Guest Lecturer at The University of Exeter and The University of Hull.

Affiliations

As a Business Mediator, I am a member of the Federation of Small Businesses. I hold the CIM Diploma in Marketing and a BA (Hons) Upper Second Class in Business Administration. I've been on the Clerksroom panel for many years.
