I engaged with Jeff Lewis in relation to a dispute upon retiring as a professional sportsman through injury. Jeff offered reassurance and guidance through a very unsettling time, the result of which was a positive one. His commitment in achieving the result was hugely comforting and I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Jeff in similar matters.

I found the mediation on Friday probably the best run mediation I have been involved in. It seemed very close to collapse and yet Jeff managed to find a way to keep the parties talking and a sensible deal was reached, very much against the odds. The whole show was conducted with great skill and attention to detail and I just wanted to say that. I am not usually one to shower praise but I would like to on this occasion.
