Greg Clayton draws from his experience as a respected trial lawyer to serve as a uniquely effective mediator to help find resolutions to even the most difficult cases. Whether working with highly sophisticated commercial litigants or individuals experiencing a legal issue for the first time, Greg brings insight, patience and empathy to mediations. He is known for finding ways to resolve contested cases where strong personalities or vastly different perceptions stand in the way of settlement.

During a legal career spanning 35 years, Greg has lived and practiced in Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine. From his base in Camden, Maine, he currently serves as a mediator in all three states.

In recognition of excellence in the field of Alternative Dispute Resolution, Greg has been inducted into the National Academy of Distinguished Neutrals. He is also regularly recognized in rankings of top attorneys in New England and was named by The Best Lawyers in America© as “Lawyer of the Year” for 2019 for his mediation work in the Concord, New Hampshire area.

Since 2016, Greg has also served as Adjunct Professor of Negotiation at Vermont School of Law.


With Greg, there is no wasted time. His mediations are productive work sessions that have led to resolution of some very difficult cases. He treats both sides with great understanding and imparts wisdom that attorneys & clients respect.
