Award winning specialist mediation

Settle your dispute and reduce costs, delay, stress and uncertainty

About Me

I have been mediating disputes since 2006. I am a Fellow of the Civil Mediation Council. I was awarded Mediation Achiever of the Year 2021. I am a non practising solicitor.

Areas of Work

I mediate all kinds of disputes but specialise in mediating disputes about contentious wills, trusts and probate, personal injury and clinical negligence. I also deliver training on mediation to law firms.

What I do

I help people resolve difficult disputes without the costs, delay, stress and uncertainty of going to court. I work with parties as a trusted independent neutral to help them find their own agreed solutions.

“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.”

Bryony Steele - Associate Solicitor, DAC Beachcroft LLP

“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.”

Shantala Carr - Partner, Girlings Solicitors

“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.”

Liz Hickman - Legal Director, Higgs LLP
