Other

Carolyn has many outside interests beyond law and mediation. She is artistic and creative and is a keen gardener. She loves dance and still enjoys taking to the floor but she is more often to be found in her favourite seat at Sadlers Wells. She is a good walker and has covered many miles for charity. She is a friendly guide and mentor not only to the young people in her own family but across the globe through a wide network of long-standing friends and former colleagues.

Carolyn’s Approach

Carolyn brings all her wider life experience to bear in helping clients de-escalate issues and find better ways of moving forward than continued conflict. She passionately believes that there is no problem so complex that people cannot find a way to resolve it. She featured as a Leader in Field for many years, both in Chambers and Legal 500, being noted as “one of the most client-centred lawyers I have ever come across” and for being “tenacious and extremely able”. Carolyn has built a wide network and a strong profile in her industry and is widely regarded as being both well liked and well respected in equal measure. As a mediator, she is an exceptional listener and clients have appreciated her commitment and her depth of preparation in what they have praised as “well run” and “well managed” mediations.

Examples of experience

  • Challenging personal disputes over contested claims to property, possessions and the access required to recover these.
  • Protracted insolvency officeholder claims against directors for recovery of assets and dividends.
