Who's Who Legal Mediation

40 years’ experience as a practising barrister in the field of general commercial, professional negligence and employment work, and 15 years sitting as a deputy High Court judge in Queen’s Bench, Chancery Division and the TCC, have equipped Michel to mediate most civil and commercial disputes. Ten years ago, he left Littleton Chambers, of which he had been head, and founded Independent Mediators Ltd to practise as a full-time mediator. Some thousand mediations behind him, Michel is recognised in the legal directories as an expert in his field in mediation both in the UK and internationally.

He is a distinguished fellow and a director of the International Academy of Mediators. He was the first chairman of the England and Wales Bar Council ADR committee and a member of the working party that drafted the EU Code of Practice for Mediators, and he gave expert opinion to JURI, the legal service committee of the European Parliament, prior to its adopting the European ADR Directive. In 2012 he was invited to join the Singapore Mediation Centre’s international panel of mediators. He is a PIM senior mediator and is regularly asked to give seminars and mediation advocacy training in the UK and abroad. Who’s Who Legal has named him as Lawyer of the Year in Mediation for 2017, and as one of a small number of Thought Leaders in mediation across the world. He recently represented IAM at UNCITRAL’S Working Group II, which is drafting an instrument for the international recognition of international commercial mediated settlement agreements.

WWL says: Michel Kallipetis QC is emphatically praised as a "huge presence” in the mediation market who is “always on top of the legal issues”.
