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."

(Barrister)

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

Paul Newman

Civil and Commercial Mediator

   

Practice Overview

Paul aims to balance the therapeutic benefit of allowing parties to get things off their chests with firm but non-confrontational reality testing. As a lawyer with nearly 30 years of litigation experience he knows the financial risk and emotional stress litigation brings to most clients. Interested in the psychological drivers underlying disputes Paul actively works to encourage parties to identify where their true interests may lie and to achieve a negotiated outcome.


Professional Background

Paul Newman is a barrister in private practice, specialising in construction and property law. He advises across a broad range of construction disputes, including standard and non-standard contracts. Paul’s property cases include rights of way, boundary and party wall disputes. He combines Court and arbitration hearings with mediation and adjudication.

Over the last decade Paul has been involved in more than 150 mediations as mediator or advocate. Though his mediation practice is substantially based on construction and property disputes, he has also mediated disputes in other sectors - general commercial (e.g. franchising, sale of goods and partnership), personal injury and libel.


Endorsements

“We would like to thank you for your valuable contribution you made toward the litigation we were recently exposed to. Your quick grasp … proved a real salve and we are both very grateful”


“It was a pleasure meeting you yesterday and on behalf of this firm and the parties, may we take this opportunity of thanking you for your assistance and perseverance throughout the day.”

 

Other experience

Paul was called to the Bar (Gray’s Inn) in 1982 and is a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators. He speaks fluent French and German and has a good knowledge (including written) of Spanish.

He has lectured on mediation in the UK, Belgium and Sweden. He is the author of numerous articles as well as being the author of or a contributor to several books on ADR.
