Harriet Lipkin - Mediator
Harriet Lipkin – Find a Mediator
As a panel member at Promediate and in my personal capacity I have mediated in a variety of commercial and consumer disputes.
As a mediator with Bolton at Home’s Resolve Service, I also help to resolve conflicts between neighbours and build community relationships.
I am also an experienced Senior Lecturer in Law at Manchester Metropolitan University. My specialism is in Property Law and Legal Skills, but I have experience in many other areas and regularly visit Hong Kong University to lecture in Land Law. I have also practiced as a Commercial Property solicitor.
I’m there to help the parties explore creative solutions, free from the constraints of the courtroom. I create a sense of flexibility and informality and assist the parties to preserve relationships in movingforward wherever possible. My role is impartial and all discussions are confidential.
I am calm, patient and bring a wealth of professional experience to mediation. Many years of course leadership, assessing moots and dealing with student issues have sharpened my ability to be impartial and objective.
My years of teaching experience make me a good communicator. Coaching and mentoring colleagues and students from diverse cultural backgrounds has also made me a skilled listener, facilitator and problem solver.
