Paul understands the cost of human and financial resources entailed in litigation. In seeking to help the parties avoid this, he believes in thorough preparation for any mediation, not only to understand the parties objectives and the background to the dispute but also as a means to facilitating problem solving on the day. Wherever possible, Paul will facilitate a commercially practical solution with a view to minimising the parties costs, time and effort.

As a mediator he quickly builds confidence and rapport with his friendly approach. In private with each party, he focuses on issues and uses his skills to unlock options and choices to assist the parties in their search for a settlement.

"My interaction with the Mediator was during the mediation process. Very quickly he was able to have both parties focusing on the major point of the dispute. He was also very good at retaining both parties focus on the major part of the dispute. He made each person feel that they had a contribution to make and to keep the dialogue going. I have no doubt that a final compromise was reached due to the Mediator's particular personality and manner in which he dealt with all parties. His input was fundamental in an agreeable solution being reached. I am sure this would not have happened if the matter had progressed to Court." - BTW Shiells - November 2010

"Both sides in this dispute were relieved that the matter was settled at the mediation and they did not incur further costs and stress in dealing with the case. Paul Rose, the mediator, was patient and gave the parties the opportunity to explain their positions but was also able to direct the parties towards finding a basis upon which the dispute could be brought to an end. Without Paul's influence the dispute would not have settled so the parties are pleased they decided to go to mediation with Clerksroom and Paul Rose at the helm." - Furley Page - October 2010

"This was a very difficult matter with relations between the parties, hostile to say the least. It was a matter that lent itself to mediation but in which a settlement seemed unlikely given the entrenched and emotional positions adopted by the parties. Mr Rose expertly managed the situation, persevered and achieved a very positive outcome." - William Graham Law Ltd - October 2010

"Paul assisted the parties achieve a settlement which appeared unattainable at the outset." - Lyons Davidson - October 2010

"Although the parties did not reach a settlement, without the mediator's input and efforts, important issues emerged that would have otherwise not been considered by the parties. The mediator allowed the parties to think "outside the box" as it were. Very happy with his performance - Trinity LLP - October 2010

"Paul's candour and diplomacy skills assisted the parties in reaching a commercial settlement and settling what would otherwise have resulted in disproportionate costs in legal proceedings for all involved" - Fenwick Elliott - September 2010

"We found his friendly, facilitative style to be particularly helpful in assisting a settlement to be reached on the day, and would certainly consider using him again should an appropriate case arise" - Reynolds Porter Chamberlain - June 2010.
