I am an Accredited Civil & Commercial Mediator, and a member of In Place Of Strife’s Mediation Chambers. My approach to mediating commercial disputes focuses on finding practical solutions the parties can, and are prepared to live with.
I have over 25 years’ experience as a lawyer, and an undiminished energy to look at problems laterally. I understand the importance of allowing mediating parties time and space to articulate, explore and adapt their positions, and, equally, of keeping positive momentum going. I look to keep and encourage this fine balance during dispute resolution and I consider that an ability to read people is key to my work as a mediator.
My clients have commented that:
