Endorsements

“He was clearly acquainted with the issues and had read the papers. His experience was evident and he inspired confidence from the outset” Pat Albaster Ian, Simpson & Co solicitors

“The case was settled. Mr Salmon demonstrated a comprehensive understanding of the legal issues. He had read the papers thoroughly and handled the mediation and in particular the parties aspirations sensitively. His conduct in the matter was instrumental in the parties reaching a settlement.” Nick Johnson Glaisyers solicitors

“His skill at conciliatory mediation was in my opinion, the catalyst to the agreement reached…”. “…both parties… have continued to trade…” “I greatly appreciate the efforts of [Ken] and recommend him highly.” Q Flooring Systems Limited

“…Mr Salmon put our client at ease and had clearly read and understood all of the documentation provided to him in advance. He took a flexible approach to the mediation and ultimately the dispute was resolved without the need for the usual round-table session. Mr Salmon came across as knowledgeable and familiar with the law, the type of dispute and the mediation process. The over all impression was that Mr Salmon was a very experienced and competent mediator.” Pannone solicitors

“I appointed Ken Salmon as mediator on a construction dispute which had being on going for a significant period of time with the costs of litigation a concern for all. Through his calm, organised and commercial approach Ken was able to help negotiate a settlement which was satisfactory to the parties when this had appeared unlikely prior to his involvement. I would instruct Ken again and would recommend him to mediate on disputes of this nature.” Richard Preston, Beswicks solicitors Stoke on Trent
