George is an IMI-certified mediator. He did his mediation training in 1996 at CEDR, and later, at Harvard. In 1997, he helped to set up the Singapore Mediation Centre (SMC).

George mediates regularly at the SMC, and has successfully mediated many complex cross-border disputes. His mediation practice covers banking, finance, joint ventures, construction, professional negligence, partnerships, family and other disputes.
