Michael Malone is our exclusively recommended Mediation expert in England on the Advisory Excellence website. If you need assistance in this area, please contact Steve Walker, the Lead Civil Clerk at Trinity Chambers, on 0191 232 1927, or at [email protected].
Michael is now a non-practising solicitor. He practised as a solicitor in the North West of England, initially with Henry Fallows & Co, in Bolton, undertaking a wide range of contentious and non-contentious work. In the 1980s he began to write and lecture on discrimination law and then to appear as an advocate in the employment tribunals. In 1990 he joined Mace & Jones in Manchester and began to specialise in employment tribunal advocacy. He was appointed as a fee paid employment tribunal chairman in 2002 and as a full-time employment judge in 2006.
In 2006 Michael was one of the first group of 12 employment judges to be trained as a mediator and thereafter he regularly acted as a mediator in cases where the parties accepted an offer of judicial mediation. It soon became second nature to him to avoid speculating on how he would have decided a case if he had been hearing it instead of mediating it.
Since retiring from his judicial post in 2013, Michael has received further training from CEDR and obtained their accreditation. He is also a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators.
Michael Malone is an employment, business and property law mediator. He is also prepared to undertake early neutral evaluation of employment disputes.
