Mediation Profile

Aloysius is the Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Sage Mediation. He has been certified as an international mediator since 2007 and is on the International Panels of the Singapore International Mediation Centre (SIMC) and Japan International Mediation Centre in Kyoto (JIMC in Kyoto). His mediation experience spans a wide variety of sectors including aviation, medical negligence, employment, corporate shareholding, construction, and insurance.

A strong believer in the power of early conflict management training, Aloysius was the founding Chairman of the Asian Mediation Association Young Peacemakers Network. Today, he also operates a pure-Montessori kindergarten whose curriculum is designed with close reference to the peace philosophies of Dr Maria Montessori.

In addition to being a certified Mediator, Aloysius is also an IMI Certified Mediation Advocate.

Aloysius has been an active mediator for more than a decade and has mediated more than 200 matters with a settlement rate exceeding 80%. Based in Singapore, one of the world's leading international dispute resolution hubs, Aloysius has conducted numerous cross-border mediations involving both Asian and non-Asian parties. 

Aloysius was formerly the CEO of the SIMC and also the General Counsel of various public and private entities in the healthcare, education, and fast-moving consumer goods sectors. He is the recipient of the prestigious National University of Singapore Research Scholarship for his Masters Thesis on, "Developing a Framework for Mediation Advocacy in Singapore". He was also a member of the IMI Taskforce on Mediation Advocacy.

Aloysius adopts a listen-and-collaborate-first approach in dealing with his clients and negotiating partners. As a trained lawyer, he is aware that litigation may be a real recourse to resolve a dispute but, to avoid unnecessary emotional and financial expense for his client, it is always a last resort. Aloysius is sensitive and respectful of the stress and difficulties that parties may already have gone through before having approached him. The first priority for him hence is to fully understand the underlying concerns of all involved and to use his training and experience to find a mutually advantageous solution. A strong advocate for mediation ethics, Aloysius holds himself up to the highest standards of professional integrity and skill in practice and works closely with the mediator and fellow mediation advocate(s) during a mediation to ensure that the parties' interests are safeguarded. In this way, he aims to maximise the potential benefits of the mediation process, not just in quickly achieving a confidential solution, but also in restoring relationships and equipping parties to resolve future conflicts on their own.
