Area of Practice
Mandy is an experienced mediator with a busy practice. Highly regarded by leading real estate barristers and solicitors, mediation participants frequently remark on her energy, authority and intellect.
Mandy brings her drive, energy and commitment to mediating a broad range of disputes. She is equally at home helping FTSE 100 companies embroiled in high profile disputes to fashion highly effective commercial solutions, as she is working with individuals and small businesses in crisis.
Whilst face to face mediations are now thriving again, Mandy has also retained online and hybrid opportunities as part of her mediation toolkit. Using the flexibility that mediation offers to design an effective process that works best for all participants is part of the new normal. Mandy enjoys getting the best out of a range of online tools (such as Zoom, Teams, Skype, FaceTime and Whatsapp) and is adept at helping those who need to upskill in order to feel comfortable working in this way to taking a full and active part in online mediation.
Before becoming a full-time mediator, Mandy was Head of Real Estate Litigation at Clifford Chance. As a solicitor, Mandy had a wide-ranging commercial practice. She advised clients in the board room faced with business-critical disputes, supported financial institutions through the choppy waters following the collapse of Lehman, worked with property developers seeking to maximise asset value, landlords managing their portfolios and company directors struggling with the solvency of their company.
Mandy is a lead member of the CEDR Training Faculty, training mediators and mediation representatives in the UK and internationally. She became one of the first CMC Fellows, recognising her extensive experience and reputation within the sector. CMC Fellow status is reserved for those individuals who are leaders in the field, awarded for their outstanding contribution to the development of the profession.
