Nicholas Gould is a very experienced and highly regarded mediator. He is a dual qualified solicitor and chartered surveyor, and a specialist mediator in the construction sector. He has acted as lead mediator more than 70 mediations since 1997, conducting substantial multi-party high value mediations. Most mediations are carried out in one day, although he also conducts multi-day and time limited mediations.
“Commendably, a solicitor, Nicholas Gould has now with the assistance of a team of supporters completed research for King’s College London … As I would expect, the survey showed that the process led to a saving of time and cost in a significant number of cases. I warmly congratulate Mr Gould and his team on the empirical data that they have assembled.”
