Rahim Shamji

I have been mediating since 2005 and have a wide civil/commercial practice where I have undertaken over 500 cases in that time. I regularly undertake complex multi-disciplinary and multi-party cases. I always approach my mediations with a strong sense of neutrality and confidentiality to ensure that I gain the parties’ trust and confidence in the process.

I have a keen interest in the cross-cultural issues that can often become a barrier to settlement. As the lead faculty member for ADR ODR International I am always refining new techniques to ensure that parties feel that the process has served their interests. I work extremely hard to ensure that I listen to what the parties need, which I feel is vital in reaching a meaningful settlement.
