About Us


Why mediation?

Sometimes things do not quite go as planned and disputes arise. Most dispute processes appear to be geared towards advisers rather than the suffering parties. That is wrong. 

With mediation, you will strive to arrive at an outcome that you can both live with and then move on with your lives. This is something you may not get with other forms of dispute resolution. 


Why me?

I am an Accredited Mediator through the London School of Mediation, a registered mediator with the Civil Mediation Council. I am a member of the following mediation panels:

Association of Midlands Mediators

Construction Disputes Resolution Board (New Zealand)

Construction Industry Council (CIC) Panel of Mediators

Hong Kong Mediation Centre

Institution of Civil Engineers

ProMediate (UK) Ltd

The Mediator Network

I have over 35 years of experience putting together contracts and managing them, mainly in construction as a chartered quantity surveyor. This has been a great experience for learning about both contracts and people.


What is the cost?

My fees are in accordance with the last published UK Ministry of Justice fee scales.

5% of mediation fees received at my year end will go to charity. Please ask me about this.
