Jeremy handles international negotiations, mediations, conciliations and arbitrations, and combined hybrid processes in a wide range of fields and industries. He also acts as settlement counsel or process design facilitator in assisting parties to design appropriate dispute resolution processes, taking into consideration time constraints, budgets, the value of the dispute, future business or personal relationships and any international considerations. This normally involves using a Guided Choice process, taking into account a wide range of corporate cultures, social and business considerations, and bringing in elements of the TRI-O/S model he has co-developed as part of his activities with Neuroawareness and the Swiss Center for Affective Sciences. He has advised individuals, partnerships, small and medium-sized enterprises, multinationals, governments, universities and state-owned entities and combinations of negotiating parties of widely differing sizes and means to obtain mutually satisfactory outcomes in faster, cheaper and better ways, leading to greater satisfaction by all concerned.
