My Approach to Mediation

Mediation should be targeted, cost effective and utterly confidential. It provides a forum to explore and resolve issues that might be relevant to resolution but which may play little part in the court process. A thorough understanding of the case history gained from appropriate preparation and an understanding of the decision making processes is very important. This combined with a listening, thoughtful and creative approach drawing experience from a diverse and extensive range of previous cases, can often lead to resolution.

My Mediation Training & Experience

I trained with Core Solutions in 2011, qualifying in 2012 and continued my training in 2013 with QuEST, to allow me to become accredited in Family Law Mediation.

I have acted as both mediator and as an advisor to those participating in mediation in a variety of scenarios in the commercial arena involving contracts, property and partnership disputes and in matters of ancillary relief involving substantial assets, and foreign holdings.

I am a member of the Bar of Northern Ireland’s Barrister Mediation and Arbitration Service Committee.

 

My Legal Background

I was called to Bar of Northern Ireland in 1990 and the Bar of Ireland 1999.

I have developed a varied and busy practice in a number of areas of law such as:
Criminal defence, licensing, civil litigation (including personal injury and medical negligence), and ancillary relief, often involving substantial assets with complex and extra jurisdictional holdings and commercial disputes,

My practice involves the representation of individuals, institutional clients and clients from the public sector.

My Other Interests

Aside from the demands of a busy practice, I sit on a number of professional committees. I am also a member of a Board of Governors of an Integrated Primary School. I enjoyed sports coaching for some years.
