Paul Johnson enters Legal 500 Hall of Fame

August 13, 2018

Paul Johnson from Exchange Chambers has been listed in the Legal 500’s inaugural Hall of Fame for his expertise in Dispute Resolution: Mediators.

The Legal 500 Hall of Fame highlights individuals who have received constant praise by their clients for continued excellence and recognises practitioners who are at the pinnacle of their profession.

Paul is one of the leading mediators in the UK. He is a former solicitor/partner (1990 to 2006) who transferred to the Bar in 2006 to focus solely on mediating disputes.  Having mediated in excess of 700 disputes, Paul has a wealth of experience of many types of disputes in a wide range of areas.

He has been listed as a Leading Mediator in Chambers & Partners and The Legal 500 since 2008, and is presently ranked as one of the top barrister mediators in the UK. Previously, during his time as a solicitor and partner in a major North West firm, he was ranked in the said directories as a Leading Lawyer for both Commercial Litigation and Corporate Recovery and Insolvency.

Paul’s success rate as a mediator is very high. If the only benchmark of settlements mediated by Paul is the quantum of legal costs saved by the parties, then such amount is far in excess of £100m.
