Jonathan Lux is hailed as a “really excellent” mediator when it comes to handling high-value disputes across the commercial sector.”
Formerly a practising solicitor (1975-2012), Jonathan Lux was the joint head of the arbitration and mediation group at Ince & Co. After 37 years at the firm, Jonathan decided to specialise independently in mediation and arbitration; he was subsequently called to the Bar and joined Chambers in 2013.
Jonathan is fully accredited by, and a member of, the International Mediation Institute (IMI) and a fellow of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators. He holds the IMI diploma in cross-cultural competence and therefore has a particular understanding of the cultural aspects of commercial disputes across a range of jurisdictions. He has written widely on mediation, ADR and commercial disputes, and is regularly asked to speak and/or moderate sessions on dispute resolution issues at conferences worldwide.
He was named WWL’s Global Shipping and Maritime Lawyer of the Year in 2010 and 2011. In 2011 he featured in Lloyds List of Top 10 Legal Personalities, and was a finalist for the Lloyd’s List Global Shipping and Maritime Lawyer of the Year award in 2012. He has been recognised as a leading mediator by The Legal 500 and Who’s Who Legal: Mediation.
Jonathan served as a UK National Mediation Awards judge (2018) and mediator (2020). He lectures on the LLM course on international commercial arbitration at Nottingham University. He studied on the Harvard University advanced course on mediating complex international commercial disputes. He is a fluent French and German speaker, making him much in demand for international mediations.
In 2018 Jonathan set up Lux Mediation, offering a wide range of dispute resolution services including mediation, co-mediation, early resolution, early neutral evaluation and arbitration.
