He also is an Accredited Mediator. He has been appointed to (and remains on) the panel of Mediators for (i) the Supreme Court of NSW, (ii) the District Court of NSW and (iii) the NSW Bar Association. In 1979 Mr Sewell was conferred the degrees of Bachelor of Commerce - BComm (with merit) and Bachelor of Laws (LLB) from the University of NSW. Prior to being a Barrister, he practised for 10 years as a Solicitor of the Supreme Court of NSW and the High Court of Australia. Mr Sewell was admitted (& subsequently has practised) as a Barrister since late In addition to appearing as Counsel in court proceedings, he has appeared as a Mediation Advocate since 1992/1993. It is in that capacity that he has acted as an Advocate for parties to disputes that would have been litigated to a final hearing if they had not been successfully mediated. In addition to his role as a Mediation Advocate, Mr Sewell also is a duly accredited mediator. He has completed the Mediation Training and Accreditation Course & Assessment at the Australian Commercial Disputes Centre ("ACDC"). He also holds a Certificate from ACDC in respect of "Mediating Workplace Disputes". Mr Sewell has been appointed to (and remains on) the NSW Bar Association's Panel of Mediators as well as the Panel of Mediators for the Supreme Court of NSW (2014 & 2015) and the Panel of Mediators for the District Court of NSW (2013 & 2014).

2 He also has appeared in what must be approaching (or possibly even exceeding) 1,000 or so arbitrations. Mr Sewell also is a duly accredited and approved Arbitrator by the NSW Bar Association. He is on the Panel of Arbitrators that are approved by the NSW Bar Association. Main mediation practice areas Mr Sewell's main areas of practice as a Mediation Advocate are in the field of insurance law, personal injuries and commercial disputes. However, he also will appear in workplace disputes, family provision disputes, construction, equity and industrial disputes. Mr Sewell is on the List of Mediators for the Supreme Court of NSW in respect of each of those practice areas. Mediation experience In addition to appearing as Counsel in court proceedings, Mr Sewell has been appearing as a Mediation Advocate for in excess of 20 years. It is in that capacity that he has acted as the advocate for parties to disputes that would have been litigated to a final hearing if they had not been successfully mediated. Mr Sewell has appeared as a mediation advocate for plaintiffs and defendants; debtors & creditors, applicants and respondents, and even third parties to a dispute, who have been required to be involved in a particular mediation in order to obtain resolution of that dispute. In addition to appearing as a mediation advocate, Mr Sewell has had substantial experience in advising on the mediation process, evaluating the merits, prospects and potential outcomes of claims, discussing procedure, negotiations and the like with the "mediation team" and client(s), attending pre-mediation conferences, preparing (as each mediator may direct) a "Positions/Issue' Statement", Schedule of Damages, Outline of the Claim and areas of "conflict"/issues etc. Mr Sewell has achieved an extremely high resolution rate of cases as a Mediator Advocate. As such, he also has had substantial experience in undertaking the drawing of all necessary documents required to bindingly record the settlement. In doing so Mr Sewell also has gained extensive experience in advising clients on the need to ensure implementation, compliance and enforcement of agreements reached at the conclusion of the mediation process. Description of mediation style Mr Sewell's mediation advocacy style is multi-faceted. From a client's point of view, Mr Sewell provides an advisory and evaluative role whilst emphasising the facilitative approach that will be adopted by the mediator in open sessions. Of course, all mediations are different and one's skill as a mediation advocate is to be flexible and to adapt (and, as necessary, vary) one's style both between different mediations and even as circumstances may change within any particular mediation. After all, mediation is a dynamic process. Notwithstanding a need for diversity and multiple strategies, Mr Sewell undertakes his role as a mediator advocate with integrity and in a professional manner beholding to that position.
