General Information

Paul is carving out a niche for online mediation of corporate/commercial disputes of value £15,000 - £250,000.  He is a leading UK advocate of the cost, time and environmental benefits of AI-enabled online mediation and his approach is proving popular with start-ups, scale-ups, not for profits and SMEs for whom the cost in time of protracted disputes and litigation doesn't make business sense.

Paul is able to navigate to the heart of a dispute, combining a sharp legal mind and business acumen with his personal warmth and knack for putting people from all walks of life at ease.

Prior to becoming a mediator, he worked as a commercial lawyer for 12 years and has extensive experience of working on complex matters at boardroom level with senior executives and international business teams


Paul obtained an Honours degree in Law with Australian Law at the Universities of Nottingham and Queensland in 2004 and was admitted as a solicitor in England & Wales in 2008.

Paul’s legal experience is broad.  He began his professional life as a project finance lawyer for 7 years with White & Case LLP in London, including 3 years in Africa and the Middle East.  He worked predominantly with clients in the oil & gas and telecoms sectors, building significant industry knowledge.  In 2013, Paul moved in-house with Abu Dhabi sovereign wealth fund Mubadala.  As an asset General Counsel and Company Secretary, Paul spent 2 years supporting Mubadala’s operations in the aerospace and technology sectors, including an aircraft maintenance company, an aircraft engine leasing company and one of the largest commercial data centres in the middle east.  He then spent 3 years in the healthcare sector, supporting two hospitals, the world’s largest diabetes clinic and a start-up telemedicine company.


His commercial acumen and background make Paul an excellent choice of mediator for all forms of business and financial disputes.  However, with his specialist knowledge and experience, Paul is particularly well placed to mediate the following types of dispute:

  • commercial contracts
  • corporate governance, shareholder and director issues
  • aviation/aerospace 
  • renewable energy
  • sport
  • start-ups, scale-ups, not-for-profit enterprises
