I am a retired barrister and still sit as a part-time judge in both the Crown Court and the County Court, trying both criminal and civil cases. My mediation work has taken me across the country resolving a wide range of disputes in my specialist areas and beyond. I undertake time-limited, telephone and on-line mediations in order to make mediation available in lower value cases or where the parties are geographically far distant.
I have a warm and understanding approach to the issues which underlie the conflicts in question and always ensure that participants feel that they have been listened to and understood. I strive to facilitate resolution in ways which may be outside that which could be obtained through contested court litigation and to minimise exposure to excessive costs liabilities. Mediation to me is about people not just their problems.
