Jane’s approach is facilitative rather than evaluative. She believes in robust reality testing but also that building rapport with the parties and creating a collaborative ethos is the key to effective negotiation and uncovering opportunities for added value.
Jane has been invited to speak at the United Nations, the European Commission and International Energy Agency and fulfilled a number of other international speaking engagements. Addressed the U.S. Department of Commerce and Federal Trade Commission on the role of Alternative Dispute Resolution in the borderless on-line market and made a presentation to President Clinton’s legal team at the White House
Jane has a charming and fun personality, but also a natural sensitivity and perception to the commercial and emotional needs of others. She is also very relaxed at handling and managing people irrespective of their roles, status, age or nationality. All of this makes it easy for her to overcome the barriers to communication at all levels and to facilitate problem-solving.Karen Jones – Solicitor, Matthew, Arnold and Baldwin
