Who's Who Legal Mediation

Eileen remains one of the most sought-after mediators on CEDR’s global panel of 200 mediators. She has been involved in process design and brokering the resolution of highly complex multiparty, billion-pound disputes in addition to chairing various parts of these complex procedures. She has mediated high-value and complex disputes in financial services (including banking and insurance); IT and telecommunications; the public sector; property; employment; infrastructure; pensions; partnership, major joint ventures; shareholders; media; music; and trademarks and intellectual property.

Described in one journal as “a founder of modern mediation”, Eileen is a commercial litigation lawyer by background and was one of the very first commercial mediators in Europe. In 2013 she was given Queen’s Counsel Honoris Causa status in recognition of outstanding work in the field.

She is regularly involved with international clients and in the past 12 months has worked with clients from Chicago, the Middle East, Korea, Norway, Turkey, California, Germany, Switzerland, India, France, Canada and Russia.

Eileen is also a co-founder of CEDR and in December 2016 became its principal mediator, having served as deputy chief executive for two decades. She also holds a coaching qualification from Henley Management College and provides advice and coaching to senior executives on managing change in challenging environments.

Eileen is on several international panels, including the International Centre for Conflict Prevention and Resolution (CPR) in New York, the Singapore International Mediation Centre (SIMC), the Vienna International Arbitral Centre (VIAC) and the China International Economic and Trade Arbitration Commission (CIETAC). She is co-author, with Dr Karl Mackie, of International Mediation: Breaking Business Deadlock (third edition).

WWL says: Eileen Carroll QC is regarded as “one of the most popular choices” in the mediation market by respondents. She is a pioneer of mediation techniques in the UK, with experience in a broad spectrum of commercial sectors.
