“I am rather belatedly finishing off the paperwork on this 'case' (which I worked on for five+ years) and now wish to thank you for your professional and pleasant chairing of our mediation with Mrs G on 3 November. Robert and I were most impressed with the whole concept.   Thank you so much, and best wishes.”

“Thank you for your help with our recent mediation. If I were ever taken hostage I know who I would call on to negotiate my release!”

"Andrew Hannam recently chaired a day-long mediation session on a Court of Protection matter. Andrew quickly established an understanding of the complexities of the case and as a result he earned the trust and confidence of all parties involved. After many hours shuttling between the three meeting rooms, Andrew facilitated the parties to reach a settlement and a written agreement was signed by the close of business that same day"
