Kate Jackson to join Independent Mediators from 1 April 2015

kate-jacksonThe members of Independent Mediators are delighted to announce that Kate has accepted their invitation to join the team with effect from 1st April 2015.

Dual qualified, Kate has nearly 20 years of dispute resolution experience, having worked as a litigation and dispute resolution lawyer with Allen & Overy LLP in London and with Simpson Thacher & Bartlett LLP in New York. Kate has also spent 2 spells working as a lawyer in investment banks (Morgan Stanley and Barclays).

Kate qualified as a Mediator in 2005 (CEDR) and started to develop her practice from that time. In 2009 she became a full time mediator. The success she has achieved in a short time has been exceptional and was recognised in both legal directories last year when she entered Band 2 of their lists of mediators:

Kate Jackson is one of the younger generation of rising stars in the mediation world, and is considered “charming, hardworking, and deft at bringing parties together”. She also possesses the “appropriate emotional intelligence combined with intellectual rigour, and has a very measured style”’. [Legal 500 2015, Band 2]

Kate Jackson has a rapidly ascendant profile in mediation. “She is extremely attentive in the individual sessions and also able to get parties to focus on the points that matter” sources say.

“Her persistence in identifying the blocks to resolution is one of her great strengths”

Kate’s practice fits extremely well with that of Independent Mediators covering, amongst others, the following areas: Banking and Financial Mis-selling; Contracts/Sale of Goods/Suppliers; Professional Negligence; Partnership and Employment; Insurance; Property and Real Estate; Insolvency/Probate/Trusts.

A copy of Kate’s CV can be found on our website in the Member/CV section.
