"When I came to mediation it was a revelation to find that everything I had experienced as a litigator could be reinterpreted and directed into helping participants to explore their paradigms and uncover mutually compatible solutions without fear or intimidation and at vastly diminished cost in time and expense. I am now a committed and passionate mediator."
Ray has a broad legal background covering probate, inheritance, commercial, injury and contract through to conveyancing, family. An understanding of diverse legal disciplines, a quick grasp of situations and a natural empathy ensures that he brings a great deal to the mediation table where overlapping knowledge and understanding can help find the key to unlocking disagreement within a confined time frame, avoiding mistakes and misunderstandings where access to external resources is a limited option. In mediation Ray draws upon his skills as a communicator, comfortably putting at ease participants of all backgrounds and beliefs, coupled with a sense of humour and a large measure of common sense.
