Emma is robust, will fight hard for her clients and gives very clear advice. ‘She is highly conscientious, great with clients and witnesses and is very user-friendly. She’s also a tenacious cross-examiner.’ “

Personal Injury

Emma has 20 years experience acting for both claimants and defendants. In January 2015 Emma qualified as a mediator and has since observed a number of mediations within the areas of personal injury and clinical negligence, probate matters, insurance disputes, neighbourhood issues and landlord / tenant conflicts.

In practice, Emma has acted for her clients in mediations including multi party mediations and has also advised the use of mediation in cases where it has led to very positive outcomes.

Emma appreciates the commercial merit of using a process which seeks to offer a swifter resolution at less cost and importantly the chance to re-inject a human and totally client centred focus to a dispute. As a new mediator she can offer a fixed fee at competitive rates to assist in any type of mediation. She has a realistic, fair and no nonsense approach to cases and a proven track record for gaining the trust of her clients both lay and professional.

Emma can discuss her experience and what she can offer as a mediator at your convenience and can run a short lunch time session on the benefits of mediation at your offices.
