Financial Dispute Resolution Service (FDRS) has appointed Trevor Slater as its new Client Director.

Trevor’s extensive expertise within the financial service sector and experience as commercial mediator, negotiator and trainer, make him a natural fit for leading Financial Dispute Resolution Service.

Over the past weekend, members of FairWay’s dispute resolution team attended a workshop to enhance their mediation skills for the educational sector.

​This workshop was presented by Virginia Goldblatt and David Patten, and was held in conjunction by Massey University and the New Zealand Law Society’s Continuing Legal Education (CLE) service.

At FairWay, we are passionate about dispute resolution and we want to inspire the next generation of people working in the dispute resolution industry.

We were honoured to participate in a careers panel at an Arbitrators’ and Mediators’ Institute of New Zealand (AMINZ) and Victoria University of Wellington Law Students’ Society (VUWLSS) student event last week.
