Reviews

“Give copies to each of those attending your next mediation – it will make it so much easier.” –  Rebecca Attree, The Law Society Gazette

“Written from a practical perspective, the author (an experienced mediator and former litigation solicitor) takes you right inside the process, from deciding if and when to mediate, choosing the right mediator, how to prepare both physically and mentally, through to settlement and beyond...This will appeal to the logically thinking legal professional [as it provides] key factors to help you understand if you are going to help your clients make a good decision, which is what mediation is all about.” –  Rebecca Attree, New Law Journal

“Mediation Advocacy: Representing Clients in Mediation is filled with simple, clear language and valuable concepts for any advocate, and not just those advocates who have some specialty relating to mediation...a handy go-to guide for any non-mediation specialists who find themselves thrust into a mediation.” –  Leslie Cuthbert, Law Society

“The value of this book leaps off the page on even the most cursory review of its contents...easy reading and easy off-the-shelf reference.” –  Joel Richler, Dispute Resolution International Vol 10, April 2016
