“Maxwell Mediators is founded by Lim Tat, Bill Wood and Geoff Sharp in response to the increasing demand in Singapore for seasoned mediators experienced in international work resulting from Singapore’s growing reputation for reliability, efficiency and neutrality”
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.
Singapore is a leading dispute resolution hub in Asia and a popular seat of choice for international arbitration and has further enhanced its mediation credentials by enacting the Mediation Act 2017 supporting 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 – the first UN Treaty named after Singapore – make Singapore an ideal mediation venue.
Maxwell Mediators has a broad range of proven current experience across diverse areas of conflict. We regularly travel around the globe to mediate international disputes and our mediators have worked in 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
Our Singapore office is located in the heart of the business district at Maxwell Chambers Suites adjoining Maxwell Chambers, Singapore’s preferred mediation venue – our neighbours include a number of important Singapore dispute resolution institutions including the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC), Singapore International Arbitration Centre (SIAC) and the Singapore International Mediation Centre (SIMC).
We are just a short taxi ride from Changi Airport and within walking distance of a number of world-class hotels, restaurants, shopping and the MRT (Tanjong Pagar).
Maxwell Mediators has ready access to Maxwell Chambers, the world’s first integrated dispute resolution complex and located in one of Singapore’s historic buildings offering a convenient and secure venue for parties, counsel and mediators.
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.
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 cross-border dispute between English and Mandarin speakers;
