Q&A Session


About the Speaker:

Ms. Rosemary Jackson QC – Full-time Mediator at Keating Chambers
Rosemary Jackson QC is in full-time practice as a Mediator. This follows a successful practice at the Construction Bar from 1983, when she joined Keating Chambers as the first female specialist building counsel at the English Bar, until October 2014. Up to January 2018 Rosemary also accepted appointments as an Adjudicator and Arbitrator but she now concentrates solely on mediation and conciliation. Rosemary was appointed as Queen’s Counsel in 2006.
Rosemary has been an accredited mediator since 2001 and has built up a first class reputation as a ‘first-choice mediator’ (Legal 500), a personable and user-friendly mediator of domestic and international commercial disputes of all types. She is featured as a Leading Silk for construction mediations by Legal 500, and listed in Band 1(Mediation) by Chambers and Partners UK Bar Guide, having been ranked as a mediator since 2010. Clients praise her as ‘clearly at the top of her game, but is also down to earth in her style and approach to the parties’ (Chambers & Partners). Rosemary is also consistently listed as one of the world’s leading Commercial Mediators in Who’s Who Legal. Rosemary has a highly commercial approach, having mediated and co-mediated disputes up to £2bn and up to 10 parties. Many disputes benefit from Rosemary’s case management which enables a structured mediation to be planned in advance, enabling the parties to get the most out of the mediation itself. Her practice spans construction, engineering, energy and offshore disputes, especially multi-party disputes, PFI and insurance disputes, both in the UK and abroad.
