Recent recommendation:

- Kennedys has used Dominique as a mediator, in complex multi party commercial mediations. She has the ability to understand each party’s point of view, and of more significance, is able to understand the long term effect of various commercial relationships and convey why it is in each party's interest to settle. One advantage of using Dominique, is her broad experience in all commercial areas, which enable her to grasp issues quickly. I highly recommend Dominique as a mediator. (March 2019)
