".. an excellent and effective mediator." -AN (litigation lawyer)
"It was the first time I had used Mr. Hooper; there was a general consensus in our room that he was excellent." - solicitor, landlord and tenant dispute, Nov. 2013.
"My client has had experience of mediation before and he was really impressed with David's calm approach and the way he understood the matters that our client wanted dealt with."
David mediates regularly throughout England and Wales and has been involved with a wide range of mediations, dealing with
- boundaries and rights of way
- valuation of property
- construction and commercial contracts
- defective goods
- agricultural tenancies
- partnership restructuring and dissolutions.
By training and profession a Chartered Surveyor, he worked in both the private and public sectors in England, Wales and Scotland and has practised as a land agent and agricultural valuer for over 30 years. He is a consultant with Brown & Co, based in Norfolk. He is happy to travel to mediations but can also offer mediation rooms in Norwich.
David's background in the property profession has given him wide ranging experience in dealing with clients and their disputes, as well as an understanding of how to find solutions to the most intractable of problems.
"Mr Hooper was an excellent and effective mediator. He has completely overcome my bias in favour of lawyer mediators".
"I was impressed with his grasp of the problems along with his calm manner. Although strictly neutral, I felt he understood our worries and feelings."
"You were sympathetic to the personalities involved and handled the whole process with great skill and sensitivity in order to reach a very satisfactory settlement for both parties."
"It was the first time I had worked with a non-solicitor mediator and I am very impressed. I will certainly recommend you in the future."
"David was calm, authoritative and reassuring."
"Thank you for your professionalism."
