Tim Wallis - Trust Mediation


‘I recently concluded a clinical negligence case with Tim Wallis as our mediator. The parties started the day poles apart, but after a long day we achieved a mutually acceptable out of court settlement. My client, solicitor and I were greatly impressed by Tim’s painstaking preparation, ease at exploring complex issues, fairness to the parties, and refusal to give up. My client, who was both physically and psychologically damaged, was able to participate in the settlement far more actively with his daughter, than would have been possible in other forms of ADR, making the process cathartic. Tim kept them fully appraised at each twist and turn, and was always patient and kind.’   Mediation Client Nov 2023

Tim Wallis

One of the most experienced specialist personal injury and clinical negligence mediators in the country, Tim has been mediating claims since 1994 and was a founder member of Trust Mediation in 2008. As well as mediating hundreds of individual claims, Tim is also experienced at high-value multi-party mediations. He consistently demonstrates extraordinary empathy combined with a direct and determined approach that gets results.

My success as a mediator stems from

  • Mediation skills, honed over 20 + years;
  • Litigation know-how and technical skills developed over 40 + years; and
  • Authority from the leadership posts such as Managing Partner, Senior Partner, Company Chairman.

A mediator needs some steel as well as the soft skills of listening and suggestion.
