Mediation Style

Alex is happy to mediate anywhere and at any time. He is a believer that mediation is best conducted as quickly as possible once a disagreement arises and this can often mean doing so wherever possible rather than waiting for the optimum venue.

Consequently, his practice is fluid and accommodating of his client’s needs rather than one which requires optimum conditions to perform in, he mediates remotely as happily as he will in person and is a strong believer in utilising IT where possible. He has conducted several online mediations with the parties in different countries (in the same mediation) and he is adept with the technical issues involved in running such an exercise.

Whilst mediation with the parties in the same building is often seen as preferable, Alex fully embraces the time and costs savings that online mediation can bring to resolve issues more quickly and at less expense to all concerned.

Professional Background

Prior to becoming a barrister, Alex worked in banking and business and was a co-director of several Small Enterprises in Hampshire and Devon. He has a mind for business and contracts which has seen him consistently and successfully mediate business disputes which involve insurance and contact issues.

Outside of work Alex can usually be found practicing his DIY skills or on better days, sailing or playing cricket. He has two young sons who are determined to keep him fit and a partner with whom he lives in London.
