Maxwell Mediators is founded by Lim Tat, Bill Wood and Geoff Sharp to meet the
growing demand in Singapore for seasoned mediators with international experience.
With our three experienced mediators, each independently ranked as a leading mediator in
their home jurisdiction and drawn from Asia, Europe and Australasia, Maxwell Mediators is
perfectly placed to resolve cross border disputes in South East Asia and beyond.
We specialise in co-mediating complex multi-jurisdictional/cross-border disputes, often
involving more than one language. Lim Tat and Geoff Sharp recently co-mediated a crossborder
dispute between English and Mandarin speakers.
The combination of Geoff and Tat’s superb mediation skills and Tat’s Chinese language
skills ultimately resulted in a satisfactory settlement which allowed the parties to put a longrunning
and costly dispute behind them and move forward as commercial partners.
Maxwell Mediators has a broad range of proven current experience across diverse areas of
conflict. Our mediators regularly work in the UK, NZ, USA, Europe, Hong Kong, Singapore,
Malaysia, Vietnam, Myanmar, UAE and other countries involving a range of subject matter:
- contract and negligence
- construction and infrastructure
- oil and gas
- financial services and banking
- joint venture and shareholders disputes
- shipping and international trade
- intellectual property
- insurance and reinsurance
- ecological and environmental
- family, trust, succession, relational disputes
Maxwell Mediators provides a refreshingly efficient and streamlined mediation process for
complex disputes. There is no secretariat between parties and the mediator nor any
additional administration fees. Founding mediators, Geoff, Bill and Tat are personally
contactable and are the point of reference throughout the process.
Singapore – the ideal mediation venue
Singapore is a leading dispute resolution hub in Asia and a popular seat of choice for
international arbitration. It has further enhanced its mediation credentials by enacting the
Mediation Act 2017 to support the international commercial mediation sector.
Add that to the high levels of cross border investment in Asia giving rise to costly and
complex disputes, and it makes perfect sense to offset risk by mediating at a strategic point
in the arbitration or litigation process.
These factors, together with Singapore taking a lead role with the launch of the UN
Singapore Convention on Mediation in August 2019 make Singapore an ideal mediation
Our Singapore office is located in the heart of the business district at Maxwell Chambers
Suites adjoining Maxwell Chambers, Singapore’s preferred mediation venue. This provides
a convenient and secure venue for parties, counsel and mediators.
