Mark has been a full-time mediator since founding In Place of Strife (http://mediate.co.uk/mediators/mark-jackson-stops.html) in 1995. He’s since become recognised as one of the UK’s most experienced mediators, having conducted well over 1,000 mediations. Two decades practising as a chartered surveyor from 1973 has lent him an unsurpassable insight into certain specialist areas of expertise including property development, investment and management, as well as tenant negotiations and valuations. However, it is the last 20 years spent mediating commercial disagreements of every kind that have really refined his legal acumen and the calm, confident style that’s so essential to successful dispute resolution.
