Jon Lang is an independent commercial mediator. In May 2005, after almost 20 years in private practice, the last 6 years as a partner in the disputes group of White & Case in London.
Jon set up his own mediation practice and has acted regularly as a mediator for a number of years and is recommended by both the Chambers and Partners and Legal 500 guides to the legal profession. He has mediated a wide variety of general commercial matters including boardroom, shareholder, joint venture and partnership disputes; a broad range of IP, IT and technology disputes; banking and insolvency disputes; regulatory disputes; professional negligence claims; defamation actions and a number of disputes arising in sectors such as public procurement and media.
In particular, why am I writing this profile?
Last Friday at the Academy of Experts Chairman's lunch in London I met Jon.
By merry confidence, the day before, I agreed to do a book review of Jon's book, A Practical Guide To Mediation in Intellectual Property, Technology & Related Disputes.
I am looking forward to reviewing this book particularly as Jon's profile demonstrates that he is a leading player in this field.
