Biography

Alistair Pye’s straight-talking, imaginative style has earned him a reputation as a “fantastic mediator” and a “magician” capable of resolving all types of civil and commercial disputes, from modest claims to complex multiparty cases of up to £20 million in value. Alistair’s legal career started as a solicitor in 1989, when he advised on all types of commercial, insurance and property disputes. In the latter half of his legal career Alistair practised as a specialist construction and insurance solicitor-advocate with an international legal practice. He has represented contractors, construction professionals and their insurers in some of the biggest and most complex disputes in the UK – in the courts, arbitration, adjudication and mediation.

Increasingly mindful of the huge financial, managerial and emotional cost of litigation, and passionate about the efficacy of the mediation process as a way of unlocking conflict, Alistair qualified as a mediator in 2006 with the London School of Mediation and developed his mediation practice alongside his legal practice. His first mediation was a £17.5 million distribution agreement dispute between two PLCs – a baptism of fire!

Alistair left legal practice in 2014 to work as a full-time mediator and has since developed one of the busiest practices in the UK. He has conducted over 600 mediations, now averaging around 75 a year. Alistair joined the Bar in 2017.

Alistair is a fellow of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators. He can be appointed through IPOS Mediation; full details can be found at www.mediate.co.uk.
