Mr Michael King was instructed to undertake an internal investigation underpinned by complex governance procedures. Mr King conducted the investigation professionally and with sensitivity to all of the parties concerned. The resulting investigation report was delivered in a timely manner and was robust, succinct and was relied upon to facilitate an appropriate resolution to the dispute. Mr King’s knowledge and experience was invaluable and served to support the resolution of a complicated internal procedure.

"I regard the mediation to have been a very worthwhile process which effectively enabled the parties to achieve the resolution of what had been a very long running - and at times emotionally charged - dispute.  It was certainly an example of how effective a process mediation can be - and of your good offices as a mediator."
