Episode 2.9: Shelby Guilbert on the Uniform Mediation Act


In this episode of “The Future of Resolution” Podcast, Shelby Guilbert, partner with King & Spalding, discusses the Uniform Mediation Act and International Mediation with Miles neutral Stephen McKinney. 

Shelby aids large businesses and financial institutions in insurance recovery actions, high-stakes contract disputes and cross-border litigation. As a partner in King & Spalding’s Insurance Coverage and Recovery and Contracts and Business Torts practices, Shelby has helped his clients recover nearly a billion dollars from insurance companies in the U.S., London and Asian markets.


“In conjunction with other positive developments in international dispute resolution, like the U.S. becoming a signatory to the Singapore Convention on the enforcement of mediated settlements, passage of the Georgia Mediation Act will provide foreign parties with the level of confidence they need to increasingly look at Atlanta as a premier venue for the mediated and arbitrated resolution of international disputes,” said McKinney. “Shelby’s wide-ranging experience representing foreign and domestic parties in commercial arbitrations and mediations makes him the ideal promoter of the Georgia Mediation Act and Atlanta’s larger dispute resolution ambitions.”
