Commercial Mediation Success

Articles, News


Giles Bedloe supported his client in winning a successful and hard-fought resolution to a construction dispute following mediation which concluded minutes before midnight.

Instructed by Rebecca Roberts of Dean Wilson LLP, the case was both unusual and challenging in that the lifecycle of the litigation occurred wholly during the COVID-19 crisis. Giles and the Claimant team capitalised on the leverage provided by a substantial freezing injunction obtained in the Queen’s Bench Division and a pending application to increase the sum frozen, significantly restricting the Defendant’s access to his assets.

9 Gough Chambers’ Mediation Team can provide accredited mediators and mediation advocates for a full spectrum of disputes. Our state-of-the-art conference and mediation suite provides comprehensive hosting facilities and is supported by an expert clerking and administrative team.
