Simon is an expert in dispute resolution, being nationally accredited as a Mediator by Resolution Institute. He is also a Commercial Litigation Specialist, accredited as such by the Law Institute of Victoria.
Before joining Sharrock Pitman Legal, Simon practiced for 12 years as a barrister at the Victorian Bar in the fields of commercial and general litigation. His experience and qualifications have equipped him to provide mediation on a wide range of legal issues.
During your mediation, he will not be a judge or an umpire. Rather than taking sides at all, he will mediate a discussion about your dispute and present an opportunity for you and the other person to reach an agreed resolution.
In doing so, he will offer you and the other person:
- High ethical standards
- Dignity and respect
- A listening ear
- Helpful insights
- Total confidentiality
- Absolute integrity
- Best efforts to resolve your dispute, if at all possible.
