Julian Donnelly mediator profile
Julian provides Civil and Commercial mediation with a particular specialism in debt, insolvency, banking and finance. He is also a debt counsellor and debt adjustor which involves providing debt advice to businesses and individuals and walking them through the solution (James Rosa Associates Limited are authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority FRN665061).
Julian spent 9 years at a major high street bank and then moved to gain a wide variety of corporate experience in different sectors. At the end of 2009, Julian decided to start his own firm and James Rosa Associates Ltd was founded in October 2010. Prior to attaining his mediation accreditation, the bulk of Julian’s work involved negotiating settlements on behalf of his clients with their creditors (this includes all types of bank debt, trade creditors, HMRC, and a lot of work with directors personal guarantees – to name but a few) as well as getting involved in formal insolvency processes.
Mediation Style and Approach
Julian is known for his relaxed and approachable demeanour which puts those around him at ease. His extensive negotiation experience gives him the ability to look objectively at opposing viewpoints and quickly get to the root cause of the dispute. He is highly empathetic which allows him to communicate efficiently and effectively with all manner of participants and their representatives whilst maintaining his professional neutrality at all times.
As a company owner/director, Julian is all too aware of how businesses operate and the day-to-day challenges that are faced. As a debt counsellor/adjustor, he all too often sees what happens when a settlement cannot be reached which provides him with a somewhat unique perspective which he uses to great effect when working with participants to find a solution.
