Mediators Profile

Ali is an accredited mediator through ADR Group, and is a member of their invitation-only Panel. As part of his fast-growing and successful mediation practice, he accepts instructions in a broad range of civil and commercial disputes. As an advocate, Ali is highly-rated by the legal directories, and is described in recent editions of Chambers and Partners and Legal 500 as being, amongst other things, ‘sensible’, ‘pragmatic’, ‘approachable’, ‘responsive’ and ‘friendly’.

What does Ali bring to the table?


Ali is open and engaging, and maintains a commercial and practical view on every dispute. He is an avid student of the psychology of mediation and negotiation, and tailors his approach according to the parties involved and their needs and wants. As a specialist advocate with a very busy commercial practice, he is able to offer the parties confidence in his assessment of the practical and legal implications of the dispute, including the consequences of continuing to litigate. Ali’s practice, as an advocate and mediator, includes substantial experience in the following areas:

  • Every aspect of contractual disputes
  • Allegations of misrepresentation and fraud
  • Breach of warranty claims
  • Personal guarantees and indemnity contracts
  • Asset finance
  • Secured and unsecured loans
  • Trusts of land
  • Actions against company directors for misfeasance, fraudulent/wrongful trading, TUVs/preferences and transactions to defraud creditors
  • Unfair prejudice petitions
  • Shareholder disputes
  • Professional negligence, particularly solicitors, surveyors and IFAs

What does Ali want to achieve through the ADR process?

Communication breakdowns are the principal reason for any litigated dispute, and Ali's primary goal is to open up the channels of communication between parties so that the real issues are no longer obscured by distracting sideshows. In Ali’s experience, this improved communication very often this leads to the best outcome of all, which is a satisfactory resolution for both parties without the need to litigate.
