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

Nigel Tillott

Civil & Commercial and Workplace Mediator


Practice Overview

Nigel brings a practical and commonsense approach towards mediations.  He recognises the need to build a rapport with participants, yet, whilst always courteous, is not afraid to play “devils advocate” as without appreciating the case from all angles settlement prospects are much reduced.  Nigel has been bringing his combination of commonsense and tenacity into mediations across the whole commercial spectrum over the last 20 years.  Whilst employment is his primary area of practice, Nigel mediates across a wide range of other areas including professional negligence, contract claims, property disputes, partnership disputes, tortious claims and construction disputes.

Professional Background

Nigel qualified as a Solicitor at Clarks in Reading in 1987 and has been a Partner in a leading south west and midlands law firm in the Commercial Services and Employment Departments from 1992.  He has particular expertise in the employment field but has also mediated in a range of other areas. 

Nigel is also a highly regarded and experienced workplace mediator.  His experience means that he is frequently engaged as a Mediation Trainer and also to assess and mentor prospective Mediators.


  • “The Mediator conducted the mediation very well.  The Mediator was very good in building rapport, listening and assisting in bringing the matter towards a conclusion.  We were happy that the matter resolved without need for Court intervention.”

  • “We have got a resolution on what had so far been a difficult case where there appeared to be no middle ground, so definitely a success.  I will consider mediation more often in the future.”

  • “Nigel worked wonders… I have seen both parties and both are much happier and better able to work together – and I understand the whole team feel better too.  They had a number of difficult issues to deal with together and have at least started those conversations in a positive way – both, as far as I’m aware, keeping to their agreement.”

  • “Nigel – a big thank you.”


Other Experience

  • He is also a member of the Employment Lawyer’s Association and the Regulatory Lawyers Association
