Before founding James Rosa Associates in October 2010 Julian Donnelly’s journey to becoming a civil and commercial mediator has been a personal one, after he himself experienced personal bankruptcy following redundancy and a relationship breakdown.
It was this experience that led Julian to working with the professional firm which supported him through his insolvency and now motivates him to help others with his unique insights into commercial and personal debt.
Getting to the crux of a problem
Julian spent a lot of time negotiating settlements on behalf of his civil and commercial clients. As a debt counsellor and debt adjustor, he advises businesses and individuals on debt solution options. Taking the time to understand both sides of a situation ensures that the key issues are identified and discussed, which has been essential in Julian’s role as a mediator.
Convinced that mediation offers the potential to save time and money for all parties, he also sees mediation as instrumental in retaining a civil and constructive ongoing relationship between all parties.
Julian’s experience of supporting clients, and working with creditors during challenging times, means that he is very empathic to the positions of both sides, taking time to understand differing perspectives whilst maintaining his neutrality to ensure that he provides an effective mediation service.
Finding a solution without court involvement
Well-practised communication skills and an approachable style, as well as nine years at a major high street bank and in a range of corporate roles in different sectors, enable Julian to connect quickly with parties.
Knowing the time and expense that can accrue when parties aren’t able to resolve disputes without the intervention of the courts, Julian works hard to help parties find a resolution before reaching this stage.
A member of the Society of Mediators and a CMC Registered Mediator, Julian’s areas of expertise include insolvency, company and shareholder disputes, land and property claims, partnership disputes, cost disputes and matrimonial disputes.
Mediation offers and opportunity for parties to find a solution that addresses both sides priorities rather than relying on a prescribed court ruling, so hopefully reach a more agreeable outcome.
