I am an independent mediator, registered with the Civil Mediation Authority.
I mediate regularly in commercial, workplace, education and other disputes. Before qualifying as a mediator in 2016 I helped to resolve hundreds of commercial, business, shareholder, partnership, employment and workplace disputes by negotiation, arbitration, litigation, conciliation and mediation.
I enjoy getting to grips with a dispute, and working with parties and lawyers towards a resolution. I know that the mediation day is the parties’ best opportunity to settle, so I put all my energy into helping make that happen.
