He has experience and an understanding of the needs of the client through his involvement in an in- house role and appreciates the drivers which influence businesses to resolve their disputes. He is highly numerate, which can help in understanding complex financial issues but can also assisting in helping the parties to fully appreciate the consequences of proposals made during the mediation.
He writes articles on cases of interest and importance for the legal profession in the areas in which he specialises.
Jonathan believes that mediation can resolve even the most intractable of disputes. This belief helps provide the energy and enthusiasm which is often needed to assist the parties to progress their discussions to an acceptable conclusion of their dispute.
