General Information

I have spent most of my life solving problems. My experience comes at first hand as a principal, most recently as a CEO and entrepreneur.  Having built several companies from scratch and led turnarounds I have seen and solved almost the whole range of problems that a company can face. I have endured (and survived) the stress and pressures that disputes generate.

Unlike many, if not most, mediators I am not a lawyer - although I have worked closely with lawyers throughout my career.  I believe that this is an advantage, in most disputes it is not the law that is the problem - it's the actions of the parties. I approach a dispute focusing on those actions, confident that if they can be resolved the law will support the solution.  By it's nature, English Law is antagonistic. Mediation is co-operative, which is a whole different mind set.

My experience includes finding solutions the following areas:

Property (Private and Corporate)

  • Easements & Rights of Way
  • Boundary Disputes
  • Service Charge Disputes
  • Party Wall Agreements
  • Land use
  • Nuisance
  • Dilapidations
  • Partnerships
  • Neighbour Disputes
  • Land and Boundary Property disputes
  • Construction and Engineering
  • Building disputes
  • Professional negligence
  • Landlord and Tenant disputes
  • Planning disputes

Companies & Commercial

  • Director’s disputes
  • Shareholder disputes
  • Employment 
  • Insolvency
  • Fraud
  • Non-performance
  • Quality of goods and work
  • Loan renegotiation
  • Restructuring
  • Franchises
  • Licensing


  • Insolvency
  • Wills and Inheritance
  • Lawyer / client

I qualified as a mediator in 2020 and look forward to using my skills, experience and training to help you find viable, lasting solutions.
