Training

I am an experienced lecturer, skills trainer and 1-1 coach to solicitors and business executives internationally. I deliver and chair public conferences and bespoke in-house courses.

Topics include:

  • Mediation advocacy skills
  • Negotiation
  • Dispute resolution
  • Commercial law
  • Risk management
  • Due diligence
  • Drafting skills

I have an interactive, facilitative and practical approach and use workshops, case studies and role-plays to embed the learning.

Many of the courses are accredited by The Law Society and attract CPD points for solicitors.
