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

Jon Whitworth

Civil & Commercial, Workplace and Online Mediator


Practice Overview

Jon Whitworth is an Accredited Civil & Commercial and Workplace Mediator with an additional qualifcation in Online Mediation.  He is also a member of the Civil Mediation Council (CMC) in London.  


Jon has enjoyed an unusual professional career in conflict resolution and high-stakes decision making.  He spent twenty years at Control Risks, the world’s leading crisis management consultancy, advising clients globally in the worst of situations such as kidnaps, extortions and other life-threatening scenarios.  Before joining Control Risks, Jon had front-line operational roles in the Ministry of Defence and the British Army. He has also worked as a scaffolder, a deep-sea diver and on a fishing trawler.  


Cumulatively, these experiences have made Jon a truly grounded and calm individual.  He brings exceptional humility to his work, born of the extraordinary and stressful situations he has worked in and navigated successfully.  He is able to bring all of this ability to identify and focus on the relevant issues, guiding and coaching people to a resolution irrespective of the obstacles faced.  He has worked all around the world, across a diverse spectrum of cultures and in demanding, often hostile environments.


Jon holds an MSc in Security and Risk Management from Leicester University. He was educated at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst.  



"I approached Jon to mediate an insurance warranty claim issue. Jon was very pleasant and easy to work with and guided me through the process. He teased out additional pertinent facts, asked relevant questions, clearly demonstrated his understanding of the issue and well summarised the salient points...A fantastic result. I would recommend Jon to anyone looking for this kind of service."


"I was not sure at the start to be honest as we were so far away from a compromise that both parties would be happy with. I listened to Jon's advice as we slowly negotiated getting closer and closer. We agreed to a settlement that was acceptable to both parties. While I did not get exactly what I wanted it was a compromise and better and less time consuming than going to court which was my alternative option. Trust in the process and do take Jon's advice as subtle things do make a difference"


"...He has the patience, perseverance and empathy needed to help people find a way through to a negotiated settlement.  He instills confidence and trustworthiness along with an ability to help the most antagonistic of parties to find a sensible way forward and a sense of clisure to some truly vexed situations.  He has a lifetime of extraordinary experiences that means nothing is going to surprise of faze him."
