About David Richbell

David Richbell

An "undisputed doyen of mediation", David Richbell is one of the UK’s ‘senior’ mediators, having mediated close to 1000 disputes since 1992. David's career started in construction and engineering, however his vast experience now means that his appointments cover all manner of disputes. He has authored a number of books including 'Mediation of Construction Disputes'. He is particularly experienced in multi-party mediations and cases which are highly complex, not least due to value (up to £650 million and down to £4000) but also because of high emotion, complexity of details and commercial imperatives. His services are also sought for those seeking to avoid or manage disputes. In 2016, he was recognised as a Thought Leader in Mediation by Who’s Who Legal. A full-time mediator since 1996, David is a member of In Place of Strife, The Mediation Chamber's panel of mediators, a Fellow of the CIArb, is accredited by the International Mediation Institute (IMI), CEDR, the Institute of Psychotherapists and the CIArb and is an alumnus of the Advanced Mediation Program at Harvard Law School under Professor Robert Mnookin. He can be appointed through In Place of Strife, the Mediation Chambers at www.mediate.co.uk.
