General Information

"Excellent service - and I say that in circumstances where we ended up agreeing a figure a fair bit lower than we were expecting to go down to, but we got the deal done. Chris MacCafferty gently nudged all parties along and was impartial, easy to speak to, extremely knowledgable and certainly a mediator we would use again if we needed to go down this route" November 2018

“Chris was an excellent mediator and pivotal in us being able to settle. He had a very good grasp of the issues and his commercial awareness was obvious. Due to the current social climate, we had to conduct our mediation over Zoom. Chris dealt with this perfectly. I will certainly be instructing him in the future.” - July 2020

"The mediator was extremely well organised and professional. Combined with his friendly and approachable demeanour, this resulted in an efficient and effective mediation process." - November 2020

"Christopher was extremely thorough and diligent in his approach at the mediation today which resulted in a total success. Without his input, the matter simply would not have settled. Extremely competent and a pleasure to work alongside." - July 2021
