Philip Hesketh mediator


Bryony Steele DAC Beachcroft

Phil was brilliant with the Claimant, a litigant in person with Autism. I feared communication would be a barrier to resolution but with Phil's assistance, the parties were able to come together to reach a resolution that I am certain would not have been reached without him.

Professional, down to earth, friendly, flexible, client focussed, practical, “reads the room well”, excellent grasp of the issues. I have instructed Phil several times before and have found him to be an excellent mediator for all of the reasons described above. Would always want him as first choice going forward.

Liz Hickman Higgs LLP

The mediator was professional, friendly and approachable which made our client at ease. He took on board our position and considered the best approach to achieve the desired result when the parties were some way apart and not achieving a great deal of progress.
