What Others Say

Mediation Services

"After 25 years of good old fashioned litigation I would describe myself as a mediation sceptic, that is, until I experienced Toby Walker and the team at ADR Group who showed me and my clients how it's really done and why it can be relied upon to produce results"

Mediation Services 

"ADR Group is a well-run and efficient service provider.  They listen to your mediation requirements with care and make sure they pair you with a mediator suited to your needs.  Everything is done in a very timely manner.  My first point of call, always" 

Mediation Services 

"ADR Group make organising mediations easy"

Mediation Training 

"I had already trained with a lesser known mediation company, though I wish I hadn't. Once I started to train with ADR Group, I realised how much i'd missed out on and how much I had to gain by training correctly. The trainers at ADR Group were the most helpful, friendly, informative and supportive trainers I could have ever wished for. The training was fun, informative and interesting and I am forever grateful to ADR Group for helping me along the way."

Joanna Nutley

Mediator Training

"I was extremely impressed by both the content and the delivery of the course particularly given the need to deliver it remotely. I have heard colleagues talk about mediation training that they have undertaken recently with other providers and this course would certainly appear to be more comprehensive than those."


Mediation Services

"I must say I was very impressed with the service received from the ADR Group and I will certainly be using you again in the future. Right from the start I was highly impressed with Sam; his responsiveness and communication was excellent."  Legal Counsel

Peter Shaw KC

Civil and Commercial Mediator


Practice Overview

Peter has almost 40 years’ experience as (originally) a solicitor and subsequently junior counsel and KC. He is Head of Chambers at 9 Stone Buildings, Lincoln’s Inn.


Peter has extensive experience of commercial litigation and has for many years featured as a leading practitioner in both the Legal 500 and Chambers and Partners. He is presently featured in the Legal 500 as a Band 1 silk in insolvency.


Peter has experienced many mediations over the years of his practice.  He is astute to identify the value of a skilled mediator, effective listener and communicator.


His considerable experience representing parties at mediations has informed an understanding of the parties’ underlying interests and an ability to see all sides of the dispute.  


Having been involved in substantial litigation and negotiations in complex cases, Peter considers that mediation is a realistic and beneficial alternative to the uncertainty and expense of resolution by proceedings.


He has undertaken extensive training in communication skills, something he considers invaluable for the success of a mediation.  He is focused, skilled at identifying the core legal issues and the parties’ emotions and motivations in the dispute and is extremely user-friendly.  He does not shy away from asking difficult questions.


Peter conducts both in person and online mediations.



“Confident, excellent communication and interpersonal skills, good ability to express ideas and arguments clearly.  An analytical mind and logical approach to things.” Legal 500 (2024 edition)


Nothing gets past him in terms of issues or evidence. He picks things up extremely quickly and can make the most complicated issues seem straightforward.”  Chambers & Partners (2023)
