Mandy brings her drive, energy and commitment to mediating a broad range of disputes. She is equally at home helping FTSE 100 companies embroiled in high profile disputes to fashion highly effective commercial solutions, as she is working with individuals and small businesses in crisis.

No one size fits all, and Mandy is an expert in using the flexibility that mediation offers to design effective processes that work effectively for all participants.
