Arbitration & Mediation


At Cloisters recognise that going to court or tribunal is by no means the only way of resolving disputes. Alternative means of dispute resolution are becoming increasingly important, particularly at work, in commerce and sport. Evidence is growing that mediations are a cheaper and more satisfactory way for clients to secure acceptable outcomes in resolving disputes. Cloisters' mediation team offers expert assistance in all forms of mediation and arbitration, whether acting as an independent mediator or arbitrator or acting for clients. Our barristers are flexible and quick thinking; you can feel assured that they will bring fairness, experience and authority to mediation. We have a team of trained mediators with experience at every level of seniority.

Robin Allen QC, Joel Donovan QC and Martyn McLeish are appointed PlcARBS (Personal Injury Claims Arbitration Service) arbitrators.

Our Associate Delroy Duncan is a trained mediator and arbitrator, based in Bermuda.
