About Bruce

Bruce Bourne, MRICS MCIArb

Bruce has extensive experience mediating hundreds of commercial disputes relating not only to property but also contentious probate, TOLATA and contract matters.


Prior to entering the world of mediation, Bruce had a successful career as a chartered surveyor. He left his post as the managing director of a national firm of Chartered Surveyors within a large property Plc. in 2010. Bruce therefore brings an extensive career in property based companies, as well as management skills, to the world of mediation and disputes.


He believes it is important to build rapport with parties by listening to and understanding their interpretation of how the dispute arose. This enables him to help them find a solution to their dispute which is acceptable to them.


Bruce is a member of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors and the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators as a CIArb Accredited Mediator. He has been an elected member of the Civil Mediation Council board and is one of their Fellow Mediators.


The popular style of mediation that Bruce offers has resulted in his inclusion in the Legal 500 and Chambers Directory.
