Celebrating one year since Stuart Chapman joined Independent Mediators

Celebrating one year since Stuart Chapman joined Independent Mediators. The members of Independent Mediators were delighted when Stuart Chapman accepted their invitation to join the team with effect from April 2020.


Stuart has conducted hundreds of mediations since he began mediating in 2008. His practice fits extremely well with that of Independent Mediators covering, amongst others, banking and finance, company/shareholders, partnerships, construction/ engineering, employment, professional negligence, insurance, property, insolvency, probates and trusts.

His background is in commercial dispute resolution and litigation. He qualified as a solicitor with Linklaters in 1991. He was a partner and Head of Litigation in Leeds at Pinsent Masons from 1998 until 2008, when he left practice to become a full-time independent mediator.

As a litigation lawyer Stuart represented a diverse range of clients, national and international, in the UK courts, up to and including the Supreme Court and the Privy Council, in the European Court of Human Rights and the United Nations Human Rights Council, and in domestic and international arbitrations as well as in mediations and direct negotiations.
