General Information


I have more than 30 years experience of mediation gained through my practice as a Disputes Resoluition Lawyer and mediator. My firm belief is that there are very few disputes that cannot be resolved by mediation and I actively assist parties to reach their own solutiions.

I have mediated:

  • Shareholder disputes;
  • Partnership disputes;
  • Distributorship agreements (including international)
  • Commercial contracts
  • Disputes involving GP pracices;
  • Property/landlord and tenant
  • Tied tenancies of public houses.


I maintain that no matter how complex a dispute and no matter how entrenched people are, it is nearly always possible for participants to achieve a mediated solution. Litigation is expensive, costly in terms of time, risky and stressful.

My job it to relieve the parties from the stress and expense of the dispute and I have been effective in assisting parties to reach a resolution to their disputes.

Some feedback

"A first class listener, flexible and very effective" - Partner, London Law firm

"Practical and user friendly" - GP partner

Fees and travel

I would be pleased to consider any proposed appointment and aim to ensure that my fees are  commensurate with the nature and value of the case.
