Who's Who Legal Mediation

Phillip Howell-Richardson is one of the UK’s top mediators and is a member of Independent Mediators. A mediator with over 28 years’ experience of mediating all types of commercial disagreements, Phillip specialises in international disputes, financial and insurance disputes and group actions. International disputes include multi-jurisdictional and multiparty disputes, some already in arbitration, and a four-year, several-phase mediation of an investor and state dispute. Financial disputes include interest swap claims, insurance liability and coverage disputes, and company finance disputes. Group actions include community nuisance claims, airliner crash claims, product liability claims and financial product claims. 

He has mediated disputes involving governments, global corporations, private companies, trustees of offshore trusts as well as individuals. Cases have included claims at all levels up to several billion dollars, the restoration of complicated commercial arrangements and claims by very large groups of claimants. He has mediated disputes in France, Norway, Germany, Italy, Holland, Africa, Dubai, Singapore and Hong Kong, as well as being based in London and mediating throughout the UK.

He was one of the first European mediators to be invited to join the International Academy of Mediators as a fellow and was a member of its board. He is a member of the ICC and its mediation panel and has supported the ICC International Commercial Mediation competition in every year of its existence. He is a mediation fellow of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators, a member of many international mediation organisations and he lectures and teaches in several countries.

WWL says: Phillip Howell-Richardson is described by clients as a “natural mediator” with nearly 30 years of experience in the field.
