Practice Overview

Beverly is a highly experienced mediator. Over the last 20 years, she has mediated hundreds of disputes across a broad spectrum, both within and beyond her expertise as a chancery barrister. Whilst commercial in nature, many disputes involve family members, or previously close associates and have a high emotional content. She has experience of multi-party and cross-cultural disputes and has lectured and mediated in the Far East and the Middle East. Beverly is recommended as a leading mediator in Chambers and Partners, the Legal 500 and Who’s Who Legal. She is recognised by Legal 500 in its Hall of Fame as a mediator who has received constant praise from her clients and who is at the pinnacle of her profession and by Who’s Who Legal as the Most Highly Regarded Junior for mediation.
