Feedback Digest
Reviewer: Mr Loong Reviewer Seng Onn ( imi_qap@mediation.com.sg )
Latest Update: 2017-08-02 23:46:25

This Feedback Digest is based on 12 feedbacks from 10 mediations that took place since 16 January 2014.

Mr Rengarajoo Balasamy has been rated at Performance Levels 4 and 5 (out of a 5-point performance rating scale) by most lawyers and parties for whom he has acted as a mediator.

Mr Rengarajoo was noted by some for his good mediation skills and his ability to get to the nub of the case quickly.

His balanced temperament and patience helped him manage mediations that involved difficult parties and counsel. For example, in one case that involved an aggressive counsel, Mr Rengarajoo managed to persuade the counsel to leave his client alone with the mediators for a private session.

Even in cases that ended with no full settlement, parties were thankful to Mr Rengarajoo for bringing them closer to one. Mr Rengarajoo’s ability to narrow down the issues was also commended by some lawyers.
