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 2022 (making me in the TOP 20 UK mediators) and am listed in Chambers & Partners 2020 Review of Mediators.

My main sectors of expertise are mediating commercial contracts, workplace disputes, aviation, property, construction and family office. 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.
