In 2016 Chris underwent further training with the Department of Justice and Attorney General and is now a Queensland Law Society Nationally Accredited Mediator.
Mediation is a form of dispute resolution process where the parties to a dispute are assisted by an independent outside intervener (the mediator), who attempts to assist the parties in their process of decision-making and reach an outcome about the dispute.
Mediation is compulsory in some legal disputes and is often a more cost effective alternative to litigation. It is a way for the parties to resolve their dispute and achieve an outcome which is within the control of the parties.
Chris' further training and experience further enhances his ability to assist and guide clients in resolving conflict and in dispute resolution.
Whilst Chris' particular focus is in mediating and assisting parties to resolve their wills and estates disputes, given his specialty in succession law, Chris is qualified to mediate a large range of disputes including contract, business, partnership and property disputes and litigation.
