Shane is a chartered accountant with extensive expertise in valuation, assessment of economic loss and providing expert evidence to the courts and other tribunals. He has given expert testimony before the courts in excess of 150 times and has attended more than 50 mediations. He has been specialising in the area of financial disputes for over twenty years and in this time has worked with many of New Zealand's leading lawyers and Queens Counsel including family law and commercial disputes (ranging from small commercial matters to disputes in excess of $100m) among others.
He has been appointed by the courts and others to undertake reviews and prepare independent reports, prepare binding and non-binding valuations and assessments for matters in dispute. The binding assessments have included both formal arbitrations and binding expert opinions. He has also been engaged as a mediator. He recently completed advanced mediation training at Harvard Law School.
Shane is now offering mediation services (in addition to his other work). Whilst he is based in central Auckland (mediations can be undertaken in his offices), he is also available for engagement outside of Auckland. Whilst he is comfortable mediating any matters, he is able to bring specialised expertise to disputes involving valuation issues or involving complicated financial arrangements.
If you would like to discuss a potential mediation engagement, please call Shane on 09 300 5481 or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
