UK Mediation Group Aims To Create ‘Badge of Seniority’ Analogous To Silk

In a sign of our maturing profession, a small group of UK’s mediation aristocracy known as The Panel of Independent Mediators plan to create ‘a badge of seniority in the mediation profession analogous to the QC kite mark enjoyed by senior barristers’ according to the latest issue of The Mediator Magazine.

PIM, formed in the late ’90’s, is thought to handle a staggering one in five of all UK mediations from within its ranks. The collective has 18 veteran mediators on its books, all of whom have been mediating for more than 10 years.

Henry Brown
David Miles and David Richbell
Tony Willis (Chair of PIM)
David Shapiro
Andrew Paton, Jane Andrewartha and Michel Kallipetis QC
