Clive studied at Lincoln College, Oxford and the Inns of Court School of Law and qualified as a Barrister in 1983. He qualified as a CEDR accredited Mediator in 2010 and as a CiArb Arbitrator in 2012.

In 2010, Clive launched “Close My Deal”, a negotiating skills iPhone and web application for entrepreneurs, start-ups and small businesses.  He is also the author of a book about modern Negotiation “The Yes Book, the Art of Better Negotiation”, published by Random House in 2013.  Clive is an Honorary Fellow of the Psychology Department at University College London.
