" Highly skilled, striking the right balance between empathy and stress testing in terms of the parties' subjective and objective positions 5/5"

"Good balance of challenging the parties' respective position and finding common ground in order to develop a settlement proposal. Pragmatic and commercial approach. 5/5"

" Patrick was as excellent as ever. Well prepared, quickly grasped the issues and despite the mediation starting off on a particularly intransigent footing, Patrick's persistence paid off in getting the parties to start speaking the same language and moving them to a position where agreement was possible. 5/5"

" Really excellent. The mediator was very proactive, quickly won the trust of my clients and made very helpful suggestions as the day progressed . He was very instrumental in keeping both parties engaged when otherwise the mediation might have been ended and in securing the settlement. 5/5"

" Controlled the process very well...approachable, authoritative whilst likeable and knowledgeable. Would without hesitation consider the process again as a viable option to litigation and definitely Patrick would be a prime contender. 5/5"

" Patrick Walker is one of the best mediators around - he is very much in demand and for good reason. He immediately engenders confidence with the parties. Whilst his approach is flexible, he's very good at being proactive where he perceives that to be the best way of moving the discussion forward. 5/5"
