•The former head of Littleton Chambers Michel Kallipetis QC has teamed up with the set’s former chief executive David Douglas to launch Independent Mediators, a mediation outfit. The duo has also joined forces with mediators Bill Marsh, a former director at the Centre for Effective Dispute Resolution, and Nicholas Pryor, a former head of legal in the insurance market, to launch the new service. Douglas said the new mediation service is not a barristers’ chambers as the team does not consist solely of barristers. Although the setup of the service is much like that of other mediation services, Independent Mediators’ functions are similar to a barristers’ chambers in that all the mediators are self-employed, independent and share a central service to administer all their mediations.
