I hold a BA (Hons) in Law from Coventry University, a Postgraduate Diploma in Legal Practice from Staffordshire University, and an MA in Law from the University of London. I have over twenty years' professional experience as a legal practitioner. I perform three different roles in the Dispute Resolution process as follows:

1. As a Mediator:

I have been practicing as a Dispute Resolution professional for over five years, focusing on Mediation. My area of expertise is Civil Disputes including:

  • Commercial disputes (contracts, breach of contract, debt recovery);
  • Civil disputes (personal injury, clinical negligence, professional negligence);
  • Property and Construction disputes;
  • Intellectual Property disputes (trademarks and patents);
  • Financial disputes (tax, insolvency, inheritance, trusts);
  • Landlord and Tenant disputes.


2. As an Advocate / Claims Consultant:

I am also an experienced Advocate and have helped several clients negotiate attractive settlements in Negotiation, Mediation, Adjudication, Arbitration. I also act as a Professional McKenzie Friend in court hearings. I can assist my clients in the preparation and submission of a compensation claim. If you are already involved in legal proceedings, I can represent you and assist with achieving an attractive settlement.


3. As a Dispute Prevention Advisor:

In addition to Dispute Resolution, I also have expertise in Dispute Prevention. Having all the right legal documents (contracts, agreements, deeds, etc) in place can prove to be invaluable in preventing disputes or resolving disputes when they arise. However, it is important that the legal documents are drafted in clear and understandable language, to avoid any misunderstandings. I am competent in both drafting legal documents, and giving an opinion on legal documents drafted by someone else.

Benefits of Mediation compared to Litigation in Court

Mediation has over 90% success rate in resolving disputes, and the Mediation process is:

  1. Much quicker to resolve a dispute as it lasts only one day;
  2. Much cheaper since there are no complex court procedures to follows;
  3. A lot less stressful as it is a non-confrontational process;
  4. More beneficial as the parties are able to maintain an amicable relationship going forward;
  5. Win-win for both parties as they reach a settlement which is acceptable to both parties;
  6. Completely confidential so it protects the parties' reputation.
