Who We Are

JohnFace We’re highly skilled and very cost-effective dispute resolvers. We deal with all types of dispute and conflict: from small to large; and from sensitive to complex – no matter how vulnerable, damaged, difficult or powerful the parties. We prefer to defuse and resolve situations intelligently, rather than fan the flames of battle, and either facilitate problem solving, mediate agreements, or determine fair and sensible outcomes.

Blogs & More

Family-business-book-80 We helped to pioneer mainstream ADR in Australia in the 1980s and, as supreme pragmatists, have pushed the boundaries of professional problem solving, dispute resolution and peace making ever since. On that journey we developed special ADR approaches and processes for many applications – especially family businesses and professional practices. We love to write and talk about things we’re passionate about, and invite you to enjoy and engage with our blogs, audios and videos.
