MA Feedback digest
Reviewer: Dr. Fiutak Thomas ( )
Latest Update: 0 _MONTH_SHORT_00 0000

This Feedback Digest is based on 10 feedbacks from mediations, collected since April 2011, as well as my personal acquaintance with Mrs Avlogiari. Mrs Avlogari has been a Mediation Advocate since 2005. The main characteristics of Mrs Avlogiari’s character as described by all respondents are her integrity and the responsibility with which she handles professional matters. Her significant experience in legal practice (over 24 years) is one of the key reasons identified by the respondents that allow her to act as a Mediation Advocate very effectively. Some of Mrs Avlogiari’s areas of professional expertise are (a) commercial and labour, (b) construction and real estate, (c) family, and (d) medical and bio-ethical mediation. The respondents indicated that she has deep knowledge of negotiation strategies and excellent communication skills. The aforementioned combination allows her to be equally effective in protecting her client's interests and at the same time sustaining a fruitful mediation atmosphere with the mediator and the opposing party. Mrs Avlogiari has also shown great capability in organising and implementing a mediation strategy as well as counselling and preparing her client (e.g. a company representative) for the mediation process. Moreover, Mrs Avlogiari has proven to be very effective in sustaining smooth labour relations within companies that have given her the task of handling labour disputes (between company management and employees or between the employees themselves). There was no negative feedback whatsoever on Mrs Avlogiari’ s performance as a Mediation Advocate. Reviewer: Dr. Thomas Fiutak
