Mediation Style

David draws upon over 35 years of experience as a company and commercial litigation solicitor. His knowledge and understanding of the technical and procedural issues (and the costs) that can sometimes bog down parties in litigation help him to grasp very quickly the best route forward for the parties and where appropriate to press the parties to reality test their current position.

David has a calm and relaxed style but he is not afraid of taking a "hands on" approach and being blunt with the parties where it is necessary.

David's Testimonials

David is patient, thoughtful and very practical in his approach to problem solving

Started at 10AM, done and dusted by just gone 2 on a matter that had been dragging on for years. Both client and I very impressed. Would definitely use David again.

Having had a recent mediation with David, I left very impressed. He managed the process with the upmost professionalism and was willing to go the extra mile to try and achieve a settlement. I have already recommended him to other clients!
