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

Peter Vinden

Civil and Commercial Mediator


Practice Overview

Peter Vinden is a Chartered Quantity Surveyor, Arbitrator, Adjudicator and Expert with 30 years’ experience of commercial dispute resolution.  He mediates in construction, engineering, professional negligence, banking, finance and insurance disputes throughout the UK and Europe.


Parties repeatedly select Peter for his mediation style which is best described as creative, totally committed, robust, and realistic. He will not hesitate to adopt an evaluative approach to a mediation where a facilitative style is likely to result in failure and is repeatedly appointed by Parties who require a committed and “hands on” approach to mediation. 


Professional Background

Peter is Chief Executive of Gateley Vinden Limited (formerly The Vinden Partnership Limited) which he set up in 1994 to advise clients involved in the holding and development of land and property assets. Gateley Vinden is regarded as being a leading UK multi-disciplinary practice. Peter is continuously engaged as an Adjudicator, Arbitrator, Expert or Mediator and is listed on all the major professional panels in the UK and Europe. He has in depth knowledge of commercial disputes and he is described as “bold and fearless”by those parties who instruct him.



“Our practice has used Peter as a mediator on a number of occasions.  He has always been thoroughly prepared for the mediation and immediately commands the confidence of the parties involved.  We particularly like Peter’s drive and enthusiasm.  Certainly, if there is a solution to be found Peter will do his utmost to find it.  Peter is also very pleasant to deal with which is very important in a lengthy mediation.”


“Peter is clearly intent on finding the means to a settlement and he employs his experience gained within the construction industry in a practical, pragmatic and calm manner for the benefit of the disputing parties.”


“You (Peter) approached the mediation with a sound tactical and incisive method from the outset and steered the parties to a solution that I believe both found sensible and commercial.  I will have no hesitation in using your services again.”


“Many thanks for your assistance in resolving a dispute which had every potential to become an expensive piece of litigation where the costs would have been entirely disproportionate to the amount in contention.”


“Honest, straight and to the point.  Gave the right information to the parties for them to decide.”


“Very good at summarising strengths and weaknesses of each party.  Very knowledgeable and experienced.”


“Grasped and understood the problem issues very quickly.”
