Lisa is a Solicitor and Civil Mediation Council Registered Mediator in both Civil & Commercial Disputes and in Workplace & Employment disputes.
She has practised as a solicitor for over 26 years, qualifying in 1993. Her expertise is in litigation and dispute resolution, much of it gained in local government (Senior Litigation Solicitor – Employment and Litigation at Dorset County Council now the Dorset Council), and acting for large public sector employers including the Dorset Fire Authority and the Combined Dorset and Wiltshire Fire Authority. She has also advised companies and individuals.
Lisa has a wealth of experience having conducted complex litigation within most courts and tribunals including within Employment Tribunals. This experience and expertise are invaluable to her as she is able to quickly understand the issues in dispute, her clients position, needs, and then to advise.
Lisa is caring, empathetic and compassionate. She has been described as being “subtly persuasive” in her ability to negotiate favourable outcomes for clients.
Lisa is a strong advocate of the mediation process as she fully appreciates the considerable advantages that mediation offers in comparison with litigation.
