Business Mediation Services

Rod Stumbles - Mediator

Rod is a multi-disciplinary mediator and online mediation specialist, accredited under the National Mediator Accreditation System (NMAS), with a focus on business disputes.  


He is also a commercial lawyer with over 20 years’ experience, immediate past Chairman of the Corporate and Commercial Law Committee of the Law Institute of Victoria, and principal of Stumbles & Co, a legal practice he established in 2015.  He has degrees in Commerce and Law.


Rod is an astute professional with considerable commercial experience.

He is a natural peacemaker, respectful, diplomatic and trustworthy.  A reformed litigator, he is keen to make a difference by keeping parties out of Court, and helping them to settle their differences, move on to better things, and get back to business, preferably with their relationship intact, or even enhanced. 

He is a passionate deal maker, always on the lookout for practical ways forward, and ways to defuse, de-escalate and break deadlocks.  He is a creative thinker who likes to think “outside the box”.

His experience has helped him develop negotiation skills, analytical and practical problem-solving skills, critical thinking, intellectual and ethical rigour, and discipline.  It has also given him intuition and insight, and an understanding of business, people, disputes and commercial negotiations. 


Outside of work Rod is keen on golf, fly fishing, singing and reading.
