I help clients resolve a wide range of commercial disputes whether through negotiated settlement, court or arbitration proceedings. I also advise on how to avoid disputes arising in the first place by giving advice on potential liabilities and risks.
I have experience of dealing with claims in various forums, including not only the courts, but also arbitral panels and the Pensions Ombudsman.
If disputes cannot be prevented though, mediation is one option available to resolve the dispute. For many clients mediation can bring about an early and cost-effective resolution to their dispute. I have been involved in a number of mediations where a settlement has been reached on the day or shortly thereafter based upon progress made at the mediation. Careful consideration needs to be given as to the correct time to mediate, agreeing the right mediator and being properly prepared for the day.
