He has experience of the full range of dispute resolution methods - from negotiation, through mediation to arbitration and tribunal and court proceedings. His approach is to understand clearly his clients' priorities, to advise them of the options, recommend the best approach, and then to seek to achieve the most cost-effective resolution possible.
