I am a dual accredited mediator having trained with the world renowned Centre for Effective Dispute Resolution (CEDR) and The School of Psychology and Psychotherapy, Regent’s University, London. Both training providers are approved by The Law Society and recognised not only in the UK but also internationally. I have NLP Practitioner and Master Practitioner certification and I am a member of the Civil Mediation Council.
Combining the skills of a mediator and a lawyer I provide parties with the best possible chance of resolving their dispute and am known for having a calm assured manner in difficult situations.
In addition to being a Partner in a law firm, I have been a Board Director of a Local Enterprise Partnership, an external Member of a University Audit Committee, the Chair of the Institute of Directors (IoD) Northamptonshire branch as well chairing a local branch of the Child Brain Injury Trust for many years. I therefore have experience in the commercial, local authority, education and charitable sectors. In 2015 I was named the Northamptonshire Law Society’s Solicitor of the Year.
Away from work, I enjoy all types of sports and studied Law, Business and Sport for my degree. Being based in an area well known for high performance engineering and manufacturing, I enjoy motorsports. I have driven around a number of tracks around Europe in addition to learning to rally drive on ice in Norway. For more relaxation and less adrenalin rush, I enjoy going to the theatre, photography, watching contemporary dance and listening to music.
