Duncan Aldred

Civil and Commercial Mediator


Practice Overview

Duncan is a solicitor and partner with London law firm CMS Cameron McKenna LLP.  He has worked on a wide range of commercial, banking and insolvency-related disputes.

His long experience acting for parties to litigation has reinforced Duncan’s belief in the value of a settlement at the right price, and acting on numerous occasions for parties to mediations has bolstered his belief in the process and knowledge of how it is used to best effect. 


Professional Background

Duncan qualified as a solicitor in 1982.  His practice has involved domestic and international litigation and mediations.  From 1988 to 2007, he combined his litigation work with managing one of his firm’s main practice groups.  Since May 2007, Duncan has been back to dealing with disputes full-time.
