Freedom Court Chambers



Our mediators have established themselves as leaders in the rapidly developing world of commercial mediation both in the United Kingdom and internationally. They have conducted some 250 mediations in the last twelve months and have assisted in settling claims worth over five billion pounds.

The dedication of Tony Willis, William Wood QC, Stephen Ruttle QC and John Sturrock QC to mediation is reflected by their rankings in Band 1 of Chambers & Partners, and the presence of all four, together with Geoff Sharp, in the top ten of the International Who’s Who of Commercial Mediation. 50% of the UK ranked mediators in the Who’s Who Legal 2016 are from Freedom Court. Tony Willis is the sole holder of the title Who’s Who Legal Global Commercial Mediator of the Year being awarded the title, based on votes by peers and clients as well as feedback and research, in the five consecutive years since its inception.

The team was enhanced by the addition of Sue Prevezer QC who has been busy mediating complex commercial disputes since joining chambers in April 2020, having stepped down as co-managing partner at Quinn Emanuel in London after 12 years.

In addition to conducting mediations in London, our mediators often work elsewhere in the UK and have worked in New York, Hong Kong, Dubai, Singapore, New Zealand, Trinidad, the Bahamas, Romania, Greece, Ireland, Belgium, Jersey and Guernsey.
