Who's Who Legal Mediation

Geoff was a Who's Who Legal: Mediation Thought Leader in 2017 and a “mediation megastar” possessing “vast experience mediating in Asia and the Middle East”. He is APAC Insider's “best commercial mediator in the Asia-Pacific” for the past three years.

Geoff has mediated a number of high-profile London matters over the past three years including a large class action that was one of the most significant of UK litigation in 2016; a sensitive country-to-country dispute co-mediated with a retired UK Court of Appeal judge; a multimillion-pound insolvency; two large fraud matters and a deep water oil well dispute off the coast of Africa, as well as mediating a South East Asian energy infrastructure claim against a backdrop of litigation and arbitration in Manila, Singapore and London.

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

Geoff has a strong commitment to Asia and regularly mediates in Singapore. He is an ambassador to the Singapore International Mediation Centre, an inaugural panel member of Japan’s International Mediation Center and the Mainland-Hong Kong Joint Mediation Centre. And is appointed to the international panel of the Indian Institute of Arbitration and Mediation.

In Europe, he is a member of CEDR's international mediator network and the Florence International Mediation Chamber.

Before becoming a full-time mediator, Geoff was a litigation partner of Bell Gully, one of New Zealand's largest commercial law firms.

WWL says: Geoff Sharp is lauded as a “leading mediator” in the field by peers, with clients praising his “engaging manner, charm and intelligence”.
