Dispute Resolution in International Construction Contracts
Rosemary Jackson KC
Rosemary is described as an “exceptionally good mediator” who “quickly wins the confidence of clients with her knowledge of the issues, and appears to have endless reserves of patience, enthusiasm and optimism” (Legal 500 2022). As a full-time Mediator and Conciliator, Rosemary has also embraced virtual mediation since April 2020 with great effect. Her background in construction litigation, combined with good preparation, enables her to identify the issues incisively, and her approach is highly commercial. She has mediated and co-mediated disputes up to £2bn and between up to 10 parties. Many complex or multi-party mediations benefit from Rosemary’s ability to case-manage the dispute and participate in a structured mediation process over a number of months.
Rosemary was awarded the Clare Edwards Award for professional competence and service to the legal profession servicing the construction industry in 2018. Rosemary was also awarded ‘Mediation Expert of the Year in the United Kingdom’ at the 2021 Lawyer Network Annual Awards, as well as ‘Lawyer of the Year – Mediation’ at the 2021 Who’s Who Legal Awards.
