As a CMC Registered Civil - Commercial Mediator I am there to help explore creative solutions, free from the constraints of a courtroom. I create a sense of flexibility and informality enabling you to preserve relationships and move forward. My role is impartial and all discussions are confidential. I am a panel member at Promediate.
As a community mediator with Bolton at Home, I also help to resolve conflicts between neighbours and build community relationships.
Being a solicitor brings a wealth of professional skills and experience to mediation. My main areas of expertise are in land and property, but I am able to help with any type of business and workplace dispute.
I am also a Senior Lecturer in Law at the University of Manchester. My many years of course leadership, assessing moots and dealing with student issues have sharpened my ability to be impartial and objective.
My years of teaching experience make me a good communicator.
Coaching and mentoring colleagues and students from diverse cultural backgrounds has also made me a skilled listener, facilitator and problem solver.
