Profile

General Information

Harry Hodgkin undertakes corporate, commercial and property disputes. He is a well known mediator with an impressive success and satisfaction rate to date.  He is a barrister and arbitrator.

He is a team player who enjoys working with lay and professional clients to identify and resolve problems in a way that is best suited to the client's needs.
He speaks plainly and prides himself on assiduous preparation of cases and appropriate management and chairmanship of disputes.

A company director himself, Harry knows the mechanics of business, deal-making and negotiation. Commercial and property disputes have a severe effect on the business and the people involved so Harry’s work ethic is to identify at an early stage the needs of the client and to help bring the matter to a speedy and commercially sensible conclusion through the courts or if appropriate, mediation or ADR.

Work undertaken:

• Company law - shareholders' disputes, directors' duties
• Contract
• Business disputes
• Intellectual property disputes
• Property disputes, conveyancing, landlord & tenant
• Inheritance Act, Probate & Trusts
• Insurance
• Finance
• Insolvency
• Professional negligence

Harry works worldwide as a mediator and arbitrator. He is a leading barrister mediator. He has served on the board of the Civil Mediation Council, the Civil Justice Council ADR Committee, and as it then was, the Department of Constitutional Affairs Dispute Resolution Committee. He was instrumental in setting up the court based National Mediation Helplines. At the forefront of the development of court based schemes, Harry has perhaps a clearer insight into the logistic, ethical and administrative issues that they raise than any other practitioner given his contacts with the judiciary, the department and mediators generally. Harry takes an active role in supervising, mentoring and developing the skills of mediators and his practice as a commercial counsel and arbitrator gives him a special insight into the needs of businesses working in the court based arena. Well versed in a number of languages, Harry Hodgkin has some fifteen years experience of ADR projects and blends his support for such schemes with considerable practical skills.

Personal:

On a personal level, Harry is married and enjoys being Dad. He paints, enjoys skiing and mountain climbing, and loves golf, opera and baseball.

Feedback:

"Harry was charming and very professional in his approach. The mediation failed because of the other side's unwillingness to reach an agreement rather than any failing on his side." Blick & Co March 2017

"Just a quick word to thank you for your tenacity and input yesterday. Without it I am sure we would not have got a deal." Trowers & Hamlins LLP March 2017

"Really pleased and thank Harry so very much, his involvement, calm and sensible manner made all the difference." The Family Law Company by Hartnell Chanot  February 2017

"I would have absolutely no hesitation in using Harry Hodgkin again. His professional manner and excellent communication skills were integral in assisting in the settlement of what was a very difficult contentious probate case. Many thanks." Lyons Davidson January 2016


"We were extremely impressed with Harry Hodgkin and would use him again without hesitation. He was very personable and fabulous with our clients, he kept them focused on what they wanted to achieve out of mediation and whilst had a fabulous grasp of the legal issues would not allow the parties to get 'bogged down' with legal argument. Although the case did not settle at mediation the parties have been in contact with each other directly within 2 days to reopen negotiations." Coyle White Devine June 2015

"Harry Hodgkin was an excellent mediator who focused on the issues between the parties and actively explored areas for agreement, keeping negotiation on track. He also kept grandstanding by legal representatives to a minimum." February 2014

"Great service from Harry. Highly professional and helped to ensure a deal was done on the day. Would happily use again. " February 2014

"My client was extremely impressed with Harry and his approach to the mediation which certainly assisted in reaching a commercial settlement." February 2014

"Although we did not reach a final agreement with all parties we made very good headway which would not have been possible without Harry's sensible and reasoned approach in discussions and his ability to deal with individuals. I would cetainly recommend him." November 2013

"I wasn't able to thank you personally after the mediation last week, so I thought I would drop you a line instead.
I wanted to express my thanks to you for the way you handled the mediation meeting on Thursday. You skilfully brought all parties to agree a settlement that was acceptable to all concerned. I am convinced this would not have been possible without your expertise and guidance. Thank you also for making me, and I'm sure the other parties too, feel at ease under what I thought was going to be a very stressful and intimidating situation. I can't tell you what a sense of relief I feel, now that it is all over. Thank you once again." August 2013

"Harry was well briefed, knowledgeable and amenable. I suspect it was in part because of his relaxed attitude to the matter that the mediation was a success." Jacklyn Dawson - May 2013

"I thought that Harry was an exceptionally good mediator and the initial joint session was one of the best and most productive that I have ever experienced", Rawlins Davy - July 2012

"We would like to express our deepest gratitude for the way in which Mr Hodgkin presented himself and dealt with the mediaton" July 2012

"Mr Hodgkin was excellent and he came across as being very informative" July 2012

"Harry worked hard at making sure the mediation kept on track. He was insightful in his approach to the dynamics of the dispute and sensitive to the personalities of those involved. I would use him again" 30 April 2012, Clarke Willmott

"An excellent service overall and one I would strongly recommend" 26th April 2011. Client.

"This mediator was excellent. He has restored my faith in the process. I have already recommended him to my colleagues. I was and remain incredibly impressed" 16 September 2011, Thackray Williams.

"Harry was impressive and worked tirelessly to reach a solution" 15 November 2011, HMA Law


"Mr Hodgkin, May I express my thanks to you for your mediation yesterday. We greatly appreciated the way that you handled the matter and wisely guided both parties to a mutually acceptable solution, and I do believe that both parties are satisfied with the outcome as being fair and reasonable, and enabling them to continue in their commercial relationship. Kind regards" Douglas Jarvie CA, Group Accountant
Neptune Group" Added: 28th January 2010
