About Richard Buxton LLB(Hons) Accredited Civil & Commercial Mediator
I am Richard Buxton, the founder of Mortlake Law & Mediation. I was educated at St Paul’s and graduated in law in 1974 before qualifying as a Family and Inter-Personal Mediator in 2014 and then as a Civil & Commercial Mediator in 2019.
I am proud to say I have over 40 years of private legal practice behind me (25 years as a Property Lawyer). I have also litigated in the High Court both in London and Singapore and practised as an Advocate. More recently I have specialized as a Mediator
At Mortlake Law & Mediation I like my clients to have a sense of control over their situation. Legal intervention is not the only way forward when you face a dispute. Mediation can in some cases be fairer and reach a more pleasing conclusion in private.
That is why I have qualified as an Accredited Civil & Commercial Mediator and trained as a Family and Interpersonal Mediator. As a client you can make an informed choice about the help you need.
Our aim is to offer solid practical advice, through our unashamed level of legal experience, in a cost effective way – our hourly rate is only £150 (no vat) per hour. I achieve this by running an office in local business centre and arranging legal services so that clients can complete certain tasks themselves – the simple tasks that many law firms charge an extortionate hourly rate for.
