Name change: "IMI Certified" for highly-experienced professionals remains the same; "IMI Accredited" for those who have completed initial training only becomes "IMI Qualified". Blog post here.

Mediation Profile

Having studied Psychology, Business, Conflictology and Law, I am passionate about people and conflict resolution.  As an accredited mediator and practising disputes lawyer, I have experienced mediation first hand and believe in its effectiveness not only to help disputing parties to reach a mutually acceptable settlement but also to potentially transform relationships and mutual understanding.

I would very much like the opportunity to gain further mediation experience with a mentor.

I am a UK-based lawyer specialising in domestic and international disputes relating to commercial, trust, property and inheritance matters. 

I previously spent several years working as a Project Manager, leading large multinational conflict resolution research projects, with a particular focus on social, economic and political causes of conflict.

I am bilingual in English and Spanish and have moderate-to-advanced French.  I come from a multicultural background and therefore have a particular interest in international disputes and mediation opportunities.

I completed the Mediation training course with the Centre for Effective Dispute Resolution in 2011.

I completed a Masters in Conflictology, including modules on different forms of mediation in 2012.

I recently co-authored a book on micro management in mediation and different mediation styles.

I have ran workshops and participated in mediation role plays.

I regularly attend mediations when representing clients.
