Who's Who Legal Mediation

Geoff is one of the Who’s Who top 10 commercial mediators in recent years and is "the leading mediator in New Zealand" with an "'exceptional reputation all over the world and in high demand for his practice covering the Asia Pacific region being one of the most highly rated individuals on Who's Who international research".

Geoff is a door tenant of Brick Court Chambers, one of the leading sets of barristers' chambers in London with a strong reputation in commercial law.

In 2017, he was named a Who's Who Legal Mediation ‘Thought Leader’ and in 2016 APAC Insider’s Best Commercial Mediator in the Asia Pacific.

Over the last 18 months Geoff has mediated several high-profile London matters including a multibillion-pound class-action; a country to country commercial dispute of political and historical significance and a multimillion pound insolvency litigation. In Asia, he mediated an energy infrastructure claim set against a complex backdrop of litigation and arbitration in Manila, Singapore and London as well as a Middle East oil and gas sector project.

Geoff is available to mediate in most jurisdictions, particularly the UK, Asia and Middle East.

He is a proactive mediator who adds value to the negotiation process with the ability to connect and assist unyielding parties to settle the most difficult and contentious cases. Geoff has been a full-time mediator for over a decade and has mediated thousands of disputes in that time.

Geoff has a strong commitment to Asia and regularly mediates in Singapore. He is appointed to the Singapore International Mediation Centre's panel, as well as the National Electricity Market of Singapore dispute resolution and compensation panel. He is also appointed to the international panel of the Indian Institute of Arbitration and Mediation.
