Michael was accredited as a mediator in 2013 by the London School of Mediation Faculty. He is especially versed in facilitative mediation, which aims to resolve the issues between the parties in a manner that is acceptable to all involved. If, however, the parties wish for the process to become evaluative, then he can offer a range of possible approaches to suit the particular circumstances. He is happy to travel (out of London or abroad as required) for the convenience of the parties. Michael has acted as an expert non-binding arbitrator in a highly technical case, which then avoided the need for litigation. In addition to acting as a mediator, he has also acted as counsel in several mediations and arbitrations (domestic and international) and so has experience of both presenting and resolving matters by methods other than litigation.
