Professional Background

Georgina's combination of a practical mindset as a qualified Solicitor practising since 2017 and a wide range of legal knowledge and expertise in the areas of corporate law, sustainability, contract law and business/financial transactions as a full-time academic at a series of Russell Group Higher Education Institutions in the United Kingdom since 2013, make her particularly well-equipped to deal with all issues underlying a dispute as they arise. She welcomes work as an appointed mediator in any dispute.

Georgina specialised in commercial law and litigation at Queen Mary University, London, where she obtained her LLM in Law in 2008. She was awarded her PhD in Corporate and Securities Regulation on a Full Scholarship by QMUL in 2013 and admitted as a Solicitor of England & Wales, in March 2012 and as an attorney-at-law at the Greek bar in 2009. She has actively participated with her legal expertise on sustainable company law projects, including the EU funded Project Horizon 2020 S.M.A.R.T. (Sustainable Market Actors for Responsible Trade [2016-2020]). Georgina's key leadership appointments since 2016 include representing the Law Schools of Higher Education Institutions as the Director of International and External Partnerships and as a Member of Law Research Committees. At present, she in parallel to mediation acts as a Consultant Solicitor and Mediator Advocate at a London based law firm on a part-time basis.

Mediation Style

Georgina’s general approach to mediation is to move as swiftly as possible into identifying and dealing with the wider interests and key concerns of the parties, ensuring that pre-mediation meetings with each party respectively have taken place beforehand, to enable sharing and with a view to establishing a common ground.She adopts either a facilitative or a transformative approach towards mediation, depending on the nature of the dispute, with the latter approach focused on empowering the parties and providing a recognition of their respective positions, giving them the necessary freedom to shape the outcome and empowering them to self-evaluate the practical and legal strengths and weaknesses of their respective cases.

Emotions are seen as an integral part of the mediation process; their expression is encouraged. Transformative mediation proves particularly helpful when relationships within companies, partnerships and business contracts need to be salvaged for the benefit of the continuation of projects and future collaborations.

Georgina prides herself on her ability to listen, display empathy and understand the practical, legal and emotional issues people in conflict are faced with. She is a strong believer in the capacity of individuals, with the aid of a good mediator, to reach a solution to their problems, without leaving them in the hands of public bodies and Courts. Parties should be given the benefit of adopting a resolution they are fully comfortable agreeing to. Georgina is held in high regard for her open and approachable attitude and strong reputation for her skills in communication, listening, collaboration, adaptability, empathy and patience, cultivated and enhanced through years as an educator in higher education, training as a Fellow of the Higher Education Institute certified in 2017 and dealing with clients in her capacity as a practitioner in Greece and the UK.
