David Goldberg

Civil and Commercial Mediator


Practice Overview

David is Head of Litigation and Dispute Resolution at Gisby Harrison, an accredited mediator and a recognised London Court of International Arbitration mediator.


Heading up a department in a regional commercial practice on the edge of London means he has exposure to local commercial clients as well as larger household names and can adapt his approach accordingly to accommodate expectations. 


His approach to mediation is very hands on, rolling up his sleeves, focussing on the more difficult areas requiring attention rather than avoiding them and breaking down barriers. Ultimately, his experience dictates that what is needed is a pragmatic and commercial approach to matters – preferably before midnight!


Professional Background

Over 25 years, David has been involved in a wide variety of commercial disputes for a large number of well-known household names, small business, SME’s, entrepreneurs and sole traders in the County Courts, the High Court, the TCC and the Court of Appeal. 


In addition to conducting his own case load, he also liaises as necessary with other departments within the firm (Property, Corporate, Trusts and Estates). 


He is also one of very few solicitors with a practical working knowledge of street work claims, the New Roads and Street Works Act and associated industry guidelines.  


David has experience of 30+ mediations including by telephone.



"I should like to take this opportunity to thank David for his expertise, persuasive and commercial experience in handling the meditation at which the parties settled.” 


“I will of course be speaking with colleagues informally as cases arise, and will certainly bear you in mind.” Partner, New York International Law Firm
