Testimonials

“Mark Field is a mediator who I know has a strong belief in the effectiveness of mediation. That is established by his track record, which is that he has advocated and engaged in mediation for the last 15 years. I have personal experience of him representing a party in a particularly difficult mediation, and I was impressed by his approach and manner – his involvement was instrumental in achieving a sensible settlement. I would be more than happy for Mark to act as the mediator in any dispute in which I am instructed, and I would be happy to recommend him.”

– Bill Braithwaite Q.C., Exchange Chambers, Liverpool

“Notwithstanding the mediation was convened at short notice, it was apparent Mark had read all of the papers and was well prepared for the day. He easily established a rapport with the parties; even in the face of one of the parties’ determination to make matters difficult. My client found Mark calm and sensible and I would definitely recommend him for future disputes.”

– Julien Luke, Partner, TLT Solicitors, Manchester

“Mark’s approach in dealing with a complicated multi-claimant and multi-defendant claim was simply excellent. It was clear that Mark had identified the relevant issues from the thousands of pages of documents. His patience and good humour ensured that the parties kept communicating with each other during a very long but ultimately successful day. Mark put my client at ease and made sure that he understood the key issues. He certainly gave value for money and I would be more than happy to use him again as a mediator.”

 – David Dewar, Partner, Ward Hadaway, Newcastle-upon-Tyne

“Mark really helped me sort out my understanding of our dispute. I had focussed too much on my own position and Mark helped me to see the other side of it. We were able to reach a solution which avoided a family row (and very substantial legal fees). I am really grateful to Mark for the patience he showed us and for the effort he put in to help us reach an agreement.”

– Maria B. (A party to a dispute concerning property ownership under the Trusts of Land and Appointment of Trustees Act 1996), London

“I have personally participated in mediations with Mark on a number of occasions, all of which were either resolved at the mediation or shortly thereafter. Mark displayed a keen desire to enter into the dispute resolution process, grasping the opportunity to facilitate a settlement which was acceptable to all parties, in place of protracted expensive litigation.”
