Being a Mediator

I am a solicitor. I qualified in 1986. I have been helping people resolve disputes through mediation since 2001, when I first became involved in community mediation on a pro bono basis dealing with neighbour disputes.

I essentially bring experience to the table. I listen and allow parties to be heard. I am not a judge and I do not act like one. I mediate in an informal and relaxed manner. I do not push the parties to meet with each other unless they wish to do so, and both agree. The parties control the process. I aim to be tough on the issues but soft on the parties. I strike to push the parties towards a settlement.


The "outstanding" Jardine "tries to find pragmatic and commercial solutions to problems," acknowledge interviewees. Alongside his work as a litigator, his mediation practice incorporates property, partnership and professional negligence disputes.” - Chambers UK Guide (Mediators)

“Good rapport building skills and very good presence, people listen to him very well. He has a good tone of voice and excellent hand gestures…his track record for settlement is likely to be second to none.” - Client

“I want to notify the Court how impressed I was with the service provided by Shaun Jardine and the professional and expert manner with which he dealt with the case...the dispute between the parties was a very difficult one to resolve with a number of complicated allegations and concerns…Mr Jardine dealt with the case extremely professionally and brokered an acceptable agreement.” - In-house solicitor


Quite often organisations that engage with volume debt recovery, be they credit control teams, property management service charge companies, or debt recovery agencies, can benefit from a better understanding as to how the mediation process works. If staff are dealing with multiple cases, it is important that they know how to get the best out of the mediation process.

I have trained many teams on how to participate in the mediation process via lectures, conferences, in-house and more recently via webinars.
