Mr Loong Seng Onn, Executive Director of the Singapore Mediation Centre had this to say of our Mr Goh Phai Cheng, SC, in Feedback Digest, 24 Aug 2009:
The feedback reports for Mr Goh’s cases had indicated that a high proportion of his cases have achieved a resolution. This is due to his skills as a mediator including some of his facilitative strategies such as encouraging the parties to express their emotions and listening attentively to their cases.
Mr Goh Phai Cheng is on Singapore Mediation Centre’s (SMC) Panel of Mediators and has mediated more than 50 cases with SMC, of which 17 were conducted in the last two years.
Mr Goh had been consistently highly rated by parties for whom he mediated. Parties who have used his services also reported a very high degree of satisfaction. Many who have been surveyed reported that he was fair, impartial and patient.
Furthermore, counsel who had appeared before Mr Goh had recommended his services to their other clients. His services as a mediator are in demand, a fact borne out by the number of mediations carried out by him in the past 24 months.
As a facilitative mediator, Mr Goh’s strategy is to encourage the parties to come up with solutions. When parties ask for his views on the outcome of litigation, he will remind them that the success of a claim or defence is not guaranteed and will depend on the performance of a witness during the trial and the contemporaneous documentation which is before the court. His experience as a Judicial Commissioner provides him with the credibility and stature to reality test effectively.
