David struck the balance of being assistive, but impartial. He conducted the mediation with integrity and his knowledge of litigation, and the court process, was critical in putting the issues into perspective. I would highly recommend David

We found the mediator to be knowledgeable regarding the relevant law and to have prepared well in respect to the materials and the issues at hand. This was useful in assisting the parties deal with relevant matters in resolving the dispute.

Whilst our client would naturally have liked more , you did a great job in explaining & carrying it all through

Days like today you feel as though you’re fighting your clients as much as the other side so it’s good having a sensible and experienced Mediator like yourself there to assist in the process that is seeing reason in matters like those.
