What Others Say

Mediation Services

"After 25 years of good old fashioned litigation I would describe myself as a mediation sceptic, that is, until I experienced Toby Walker and the team at ADR Group who showed me and my clients how it's really done and why it can be relied upon to produce results"

Mediation Services 

"ADR Group is a well-run and efficient service provider.  They listen to your mediation requirements with care and make sure they pair you with a mediator suited to your needs.  Everything is done in a very timely manner.  My first point of call, always" 

Mediation Services 

"ADR Group make organising mediations easy"

Mediation Training 

"I had already trained with a lesser known mediation company, though I wish I hadn't. Once I started to train with ADR Group, I realised how much i'd missed out on and how much I had to gain by training correctly. The trainers at ADR Group were the most helpful, friendly, informative and supportive trainers I could have ever wished for. The training was fun, informative and interesting and I am forever grateful to ADR Group for helping me along the way."

Joanna Nutley

Mediator Training

"I was extremely impressed by both the content and the delivery of the course particularly given the need to deliver it remotely. I have heard colleagues talk about mediation training that they have undertaken recently with other providers and this course would certainly appear to be more comprehensive than those."


Mediation Services

"I must say I was very impressed with the service received from the ADR Group and I will certainly be using you again in the future. Right from the start I was highly impressed with Sam; his responsiveness and communication was excellent."  Legal Counsel

Alisdair Butler

Civil & Commercial and Workplace Mediator


Practice Overview

With a solid background in business working in industries varying from construction to clothing and textiles, industries fraught with disputes, Alisdair has been able to refine his skills to ensure good contract administration is followed with efficient and realistic critical paths.  He believes these are the first steps towards avoiding dispute but seeing many firms and individuals go through messy legal proceedings (and being able to help during these processes) Alisdair decided to become involved with mediation in a more official capacity training with the ADR Group.  Alisdair also has business experience in insurance disputes, property, planning and construction.


Professional Background

Having studied design at The London Institute, Alisdair went straight into business and quickly became successful in the clothing industry pursuing manufacture, retail and design businesses.  He was heavily involved on the Board of the Nottingham and Derbyshire Clothing and Textiles Association (NADCAT) and this involvement was integral to expanding networks in these areas.  


In addition Alisdair has also created a thriving property development business as well as assisting other developers in their work.  A move towards interiors and building design saw progressing business in the construction field.  This experience has led Alisdair to become very adept at handling quite complex negotiations in these fields, especially as some of his experience with property negotiation and business has been in the USA, Spain and the UK with special links to Gibraltar.


Alisdair has had a long history with the Federation of Master Builders and recognition from the Family Business Awards.  


Other Experience

Alisdair also has a lot of experience in the insurance industry, particularly insurance claims and has helped many claimants and insurers negotiate successful outcomes on numerous occasions. 


Planning negotiation and feasibility study are areas where Alisdair has streamlined methods and approaches for successful applications and projects.  This is combined with a skill for architectural design and smooth delivery of the final product. 


Alisdair is a Committee member for the Mapperley Park Open Gardens charity where he is involved in all aspects of marketing and social media.  He has been involved with many other fundraisers.  



“Alisdair has been invaluable in negotiating my insurance claim after a particularly troublesome experience.” Mrs J Page


“He (Alisdair) invested considerable personal energy and time in ensuring that we were happy with the projected outcome.”  Mr M Blois


Personal Interests

Alisdair is married with two children, he is a keen Ice Hockey enthusiast both watching and to a lesser extent participating. A keen scuba diver at a professional level, travel is naturally a great interest.  He is also an AMOC member, Nottingham Civic Society member and member of the Old Nottinghamians’ Society.
