David Cornes

David Cornes is a full-time Commercial Mediator, who operates independently from law firms, barristers' chambers, groups of mediators and mediation service providers. That independence enables him to give personal attention to mediations from the first enquiry through to completion.

David was accredited in 1993 by CEDR. Prior to 2005, he was Senior Partner of Winward Fearon, Solicitors, (now Maxwell Winward LLP).

The Legal 500 says: "An 'excellent operator' who can 'charm even the hardest litigant into reaching a settlement', David Cornes enjoys a superb reputation, particularly for construction-related matters, where 'as both an engineer and a lawyer he offers a rare insight into the matters he mediates'. Praised for his 'quietly effective and efficient' approach, he is 'quickly able to create a rapport' with clients 'and to gain their trust, all of this using a light touch and good humour'. Solicitors praise him as 'excellent in terms of preparation work, general understanding and knowledge of the facts and figures, which, combined with his calm, friendly and forthright persuasive manner, very often results in amicable settlement'. The Chambers Guide says: "Cornes has a well-deserved reputation as one of the leading mediators in the UK". "He is a sensible, bright guy who knows when to use the material to challenge a position, keeps parties together and gets good results," say sources."

He was included in the first edition (2011) of “Who’s Who Legal International - Commercial Mediators”
