• As mediator I can act as a catalyst to get the parties talking again.  Dialogue is key to reaching a negotiated outcome.

  • When shareholders and business partners fall out we often see a lot of emotion; often on both sides.  The parties need to recognise this in order that they can work towards a commercial solution.

  • For most people being involved in a dispute is very stressful.  Part of my role is to take away some of that stress.  I seek to get a realistic appraisal of the merits and will work hard to resolve disputes by negotiation where possible. 

  • Sometimes it becomes clear that the other party (usually a Defendant) is not going to take the matter seriously.  In those cases we just have to issue and get to trial as quickly as possible.
