I had a 50% partner in a civil construction business that had been going for about 6 years. After we decided it was in each other’s best interest to part ways, we struggled for nearly a year to reach agreement on how to settle the share transfer and pay-out. It was a very draining process.
Paul came in and had the deal done within one month, which was in line with the expectation he had given us. At times it did not seem that it would be completed in this time frame, but Paul did everything necessary to get it concluded in a timely manner. I was very grateful.
Throughout the mediation process between my business partner and me, Paul ensured the process was always focused on topics that would resolve our dispute without straying from a fair and unbiased viewpoint. Paul always made himself available for discussions, and communicated information as it came to hand, which in turn lead to a smooth and open process.
My options were explained and discussed clearly, allowing me to fully understand the options and implications of the situation. Being in a situation such as this was all very new to me and Paul shared his professional opinion and advice which clarified my direction throughout the dispute.
