Rebecca Attree M.A. (Cantab), Accredited Civil and Commercial and Workplace Mediator and Solicitor

I am an experienced mediator who specialises in helping parties resolve commercial and workplace disputes.

With over 35 years’ experience in assisting global businesses and individuals to resolve disputes and reach agreements, I am ranked as a Tier 3 Leading Mediator in Legal 500 UK 2023 (making me in the TOP 50 UK mediators), in Band 2 of the High Net Worth Guide of Chambers & Partners 2022 and consistently listed in Chambers & Partners Review of Mediators in the last 5 years.

My main sectors of expertise are mediating disputes relating to financial institutions, partnership, shareholder, commercial contracts, family office disputes, aviation, property, construction and workplace disputes. I am fully accredited to mediate in the UK, the US, and online, and have considerable experience of international disputes.

Mediation is an excellent way to resolve disputes without the costs of going to court or arbitration or formal management procedures such as grievance or disciplinary processes.

SAVE THE DATE – Seminar and Networking Event: Art Disputes – tangible and intangible assets

When: 12 noon – 6.00pm 18th May 2023
Where: Christie’s Education London

Lunch, 2 panel sessions and drinks networking reception.

Art is primarily to be enjoyed, while also an investment. The intrinsic value of art may lie in the joy it brings to its owner. However, the actual value may depend on issues such as provenance, title, lending and security. Disputes arise regarding these issues that are made more complex when art crosses international borders. The digitalisation of art by the creation of NFTs and tokenised artworks has widened the way art is appreciated, although it has broadened the scope for disputes.  The panel of international experts will explore these legal issues and how these disputes can be resolved.

Registration will open soon. If interested, please e-mail me rebecca@attree.co
