The qualities of empathy, knowledge and good humour are at the centre of all that we do.

Practice Areas


Mediation is a cost-effective means to resolve a dispute. There is an expectation by courts to be place of last resort and otherwise for parties to use Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR).

Mediation involves an independent and impartial Mediator to assist parties in facilitating a settlement.

The mediator’s role is to hear in confidence both sides of the issue and encourage the parties to achieve resolution. A mediator does not impose a solution.

Expert Determination and Early Neutral Evaluation

Early Neutral Evaluation (ENE) is where the disputing parties jointly instruct an independent and neutral party to assess the claim's merits based upon the relevant facts and law. The parties decide whether the evaluation is binding or non-binding. ENE helps narrow the differences on issues of evidence and law thus assisting with the efficiency of a court trial, negotiations or ADR e.g. mediation.

Currently, we offer this service for the following areas general contract and commercial disputes; tort claims; intellectual property (not patent disputes); media law.

Independent Review

Independent Review is where a third party neutral is appointed to investigate an issue and provide a detailed finding allied to suggested ways to manage a resolution.

The scope and nature of the enquiry is agreed in advance with the investigator, including the extent of their power of enquiry, a time table and costs.

Where appropriate an independent investigation can be a precursor to some form of dispute resolution process, such as mediation.

Recognising the needs and concerns of each disputing party is the key to trying to find a lasting solution. This where we excel.
