Jorren is an accredited civil and commercial mediator (2018) and workplace mediator (2021) and a member of the Society of Mediators.
Jorren mediates in cases involving the public sector (including contract and procurement disputes) and in privacy and data protection matters.
Privacy and data protection
Jorren mediates in privacy and data protection matters (“PDP matters”), both in legal proceedings and other situations (such as disputed subject access requests).
PDP matters present a unique blend of challenges. There may be a need to re-establish working relationships, or negotiate over public statements, in emotionally charged situations. There is often legal uncertainty due to new legislation and developing case law. Legal costs can be high even in damages claims for small amounts.
Jorren combines a diplomatic, personable approach with technical experience of acting as a barrister in PDP claims. His experience includes claims for distress and financial remedies, claims for rectification and erasure of personal data and disputes arising from subject access requests.
Settling disputes between the private and public sectors can be complicated by procurement regulation, public law principles and public authority policies and procedures.
Jorren brings a thorough understanding of these constraints from his practice as a barrister in public contracts and procurement. Jorren mediates in a way that is practical and informed, while leaving space for parties to innovate.
Jorren offers a low-cost scheme for virtual mediations (via videoconferencing) in two-party disputes where any damages claimed are not more than £25,000.
For in-person mediations, No5 Chambers is often able to provide facilities at no additional cost, from our offices in London, Birmingham, Bristol and Leicester.
