He is used to working with complex dynamics, and is experienced in diagnosing what is going wrong, and in delivering a successful intervention.
He received his foundational mediation training at Harvard University and has mediated many complex and deeply entrenched disputes. A Senior lawyer once said of his approach: “Richard is well-prepared, approachable, fair and neutral. He can maintain good control of the mediation process while allowing the parties wide scope in presenting their perspectives. Perhaps most important to all, he has a soft-spoken approach incorporating a quiet confidence which seems to relax and instill confidence in all of the participants.”
