Sally is trained in asset-recovery mediation, workplace mediation and Restorative Justice conferencing.

Her work covers the fields of probate & trusts; professional negligence; finance, banking & insurance; property; landlord and tenant; construction; Inheritance Act and high-value contractual disputes and Rights of Way.

As a barrister specialising in criminal law and confiscation, Sally brings a particular expertise to the resolution of actions against the police and to asset-recovery mediation.

In addition to commercial mediation, we offer experienced and effective resolution of workplace disputes and those arising within the educational field.

Family mediation covers all aspects of ancillary relief and contact, for both divorcing couples and co-habitees.
