I’ve been in legal administration for over 35 years – I know how things work, and appreciate the benefits of mediation as an essential tool to consider when in dispute. I can discuss its benefits to all those with a dispute, be they owner managers, SME’s, partnerships, large corporates, lawyers with clients in dispute, or accountants with “family firm” clients disputing share holding agreements, or members of the public. I can suggest which of the commercially minded, common sense mediators within North West Mediation Solutions ( NWMS) would be suitable for those seeking closure of a dispute through a facilitated agreement. If you would like your dispute resolving quickly, confidentially and at relatively (as against litigation) cost effective fee - contact me on 01254 720278 or via e-mail -


I have managed barristers chambers for over 20 years and have an appreciation of likely areas of dispute; appreciation of the cost efficiency of mediation; an ability to co-ordinate the needs of all parties in dispute and an appreciation of the qualities required of a mediator in a given situation.We offer a professional service with fees which are competitive within the area of mediation, and importantly, more than competitive when seen against the costs of litigation.
Disputes can arise in many areas and we cover the following: Civil and Commercial mediation; Employment and Workplace mediation; Neighbour disputes / boundary disputes; Shareholder disputes; Partnership disputes; Business succession problems; Defective building arguments; Debt recovery; Intellectual property; Probate / wills / estate disputes; Division of matrimonial property. Landlord and tenant disputes
The mediators within NWMS have expertise in mediating in all the above areas and you will find profiles and fee structure on our website –
