Laura-Pauline says “Having worked in London for a number of years I am looking forward to the same challenges and pace of work at TSP, just with the benefit of being closer to home. I am also looking forward to using my mediation skills. I firmly believe that a willingness by parties to engage in mediation creates common ground upon which the foundation of a satisfactory resolution to any dispute can be built”.
