Sometimes life just doesn't go to plan: things go wrong, expectations aren't met, and people fall out.
Mediation is an increasingly popular way to settle disputes outside of the court process. It's being used to resolve difficulties across a wide variety of areas including business, employment and property disputes. It's success is now well documented and the courts actively encourage people to try mediation before litigation.
Toby Walker is a Solicitor Advocate and heads up our Dispute Resolution team at Hedges Law. Toby brings to mediation a wealth of experience from his commercial practice. Utilising his indepth knowledge of the legal framework of most disputes, he endeavours to explore the practical needs of parties involved, listens carefully to what each seeks to achieve and works with that understanding to help them move towards a workable solution.
Toby seeks to gain parties’ confidence early in the process and takes a pragmatic and commercially-minded approach to mediation.
Toby is an ardent proponent of the mediation process as an alternative to litigation, recognising the benefits of mediating a dispute and very much aware of the risks of not reaching a negotiated settlement. Toby is able to offer mediation services in the following practice areas:
- Partnership and company (including family business)
- Landlord & Tenant
- Commercial property
