Feedback

As an active Mediator Paul undertakes around five mediations a month on average. His feedback includes:

• Paul outlined the process extremely clearly to the clients and using Paul's methods the parties were able to reach an agreement that before the mediation had seemed highly unlikely. I and my clients were very impressed with Paul and grateful for his assistance.
• He was client sympathetic but authoritative and persuasive. As a result a satisfactory solution was reached despite a rather recalcitrant client.
• My clients found Paul understanding of their case and sensitive to the particular issues. He bridged what appeared to be quite a large gap between the parties and we would instruct him again for similar cases.
• Excellent mediator. Always well prepared and uses the time efficiently and productively.
• Thank-you again for your help with this and in particular your proactive style. I very much appreciate your driving matters forward in a timely way.
• Paul has mediated many cohabitation disputes and I highly recommend him as an effective mediator. He always prepares thoroughly, he puts the parties at ease and works very hard to enable to the parties to reach a solution.
• Paul has an in depth knowledge of his subject area and a calm, authoritative approach which works well in defusing tension and creating an environment where a settlement can be reached.
• Despite the contentious nature of the subject matter the case resolved at mediation. Paul's approach towards a nervous Client was positive and reassuring and assisted in fostering a constructive stance towards the process of negotiation.
• Mediator, Paul Beevers was excellent. He had a fantastic knowledge of the subject area (1975 Act claims). A settlement was reached and this was largely in part to his facilitating discussions between the parties.
