Mediation Achiever of the Year

Congratulations to my colleague Paul Balen who received the award for Mediation Achiever of the Year at the Personal Injury Awards in Manchester.

Paul has been at the forefront of the NHS Resolution clinical negligence mediation scheme and has a phenomenal record of helping parties find their own solution on the day of the mediation.

Here is what the judging panel had to say about Paul.

 

If you would like to book Paul or any of our mediators or find out more about our services do get in touch.
