Emma Gooding


Client Feedback
“Emma was superb, she was great with clients and handled the entire mediation process from start to finish in a professional manner. She was able to assist the parties to reach settlement, which in this case was no easy feat. I would highly recommend to others”


Emma became a CEDR accredited mediator in 2008 and mediates both commercial and workplace disputes. Before becoming a mediator, Emma was a commercial dispute resolution solicitor with Allen & Overy (London and New York) and legacy Herbert Smith (Hong Kong).

Adept at dealing with parties from a wide variety of backgrounds and business cultures, Emma is able to get quickly to issues at the heart of a case. She combines her legal expertise with personal warmth and an ability to build rapport with mediation clients and their legal teams. Emma’s thorough preparation, focus on key issues and robust but constructive discussion of the strengths and weaknesses of the parties’ cases tends to lead to swift progress on the mediation day. She carefully manages the flow information between the parties and encourages them to think innovatively about possible solutions.
