  • Jane shows an extraordinary ability to identify commonality of issues and puts a very positive slant on issues where parties appear miles apart.  She remains encouraging and non-judgmental yet directional.  My experience of using Jane has been incredibly positive.

 

  • I had all but given mediation up as a pointless step and additional cost in hotly contested commercial disputes until I used Jane.  Jane has such enthusiasm for the process spurred on by an impressive 100% success rate at settlement that she keeps the parties negotiating when others might give up and go home.  This is what sets her apart.  She doesn’t give in.
