Christopher never shies away from the difficult issues, and provides forthright and pragmatic advice.”
Christopher qualified as a mediator in January 2018. His background is predominantly in trust litigation and advice, contentious and non-contentious probate applications, real property litigation (particularly in relation to easements, restrictive covenants and contracts for the sale of land) and commercial and agricultural landlord and tenant disputes (and they are the fields in which he has most mediation experience), but Chris is happy to mediate in any field.
Christopher acts as an independent party in the dispute resolution process to facilitate open discussion and reach consensus between the parties, without the need to go to court with all the added expense and aggravation.
Christopher is noted for his excellent client skills, rational thinking and practical application of legal principles, which he brings to the mediation table.
