Having clocked up hundreds of mediations and thousands of hours at the mediation table, he is considered to be a mediation expert. People who have mediated with him say he is able to rapidly “command the respect and trust of both sides” and manages “to create an environment which allowed very positive discussion”.

As a facilitator, he has constructed effective consensus building events for Boards, for Government and independent Public Bodies, for charities and for commercial firms. He has also run over 50 interactive awareness raising workshops and presentations when he was chief officer of the Scottish Mediation Network.

Training is part of Ewan’s DNA. He started coaching his sport at the age of 14, developing skills of beginners and World Champions alike. In the field of negotiation and ADR, he has trained people from a variety of backgrounds including Employment Judges.

Ewan was a partner in a Scottish law firm for nearly two decades. Since 1995 he has forged a successful career specialising in mediating high value, high conflict commercial, and divorce disputes. He established the Scottish Mediation Network in 2002 www.scottishmediation.org.uk and was its Executive Director until 2009 when he transferred his practice to London. He served at Secretary of the European Mediation Network Initiative and organised the European Mediation Conference in Belfast in 2008. He graduated from the University of London Masters program in Conflict Resolution and Mediation, with distinction, in 2011.

He lived from 2011 for two years in New York City where he continued to develop his mediation practice and was recruited as an expert consult to reorganise the Manhattan Civil Court mediation service. Ewan is now back in the UK based in London, commuting regularly to Scotland.
