Testimonials and reviews

Quality listening, fairness and kindness

Dear Christian,
Thank you so much for this mediation.

It has been very helpful for us to draw the lines of our future, separated and together as a family.
And I really appreciated your quality listening, fairness and kindness.

Hopefully, we shouldn’t have to be in touch with you again, but if we have to, It’s in total trust that we would go back to you.

Aude I.

Partner and Mediator on the PracticeForte panel of International Mediators

As a co-mediator with Christian on cross border parental abduction cases, I find working with Christian easy and effective. I have learnt much from him from a social science aspect and I will work with him again, in a heartbeat.

As a co-trainer, Christian has been invaluable. He is responsive and responsible and an asset to any team lucky enough to have him as a member.

PracticeForte Advisory is very proud of him as an affiliate and as a mediator on the PracticeForte panel of International Mediators.

Joint board activities for MiKK e. V. and seminars in Japan

I have a wide range of professional experience with Christian von Baumbach, starting with joint board work for the non-profit association MiKK e.V. International Mediation Center for Family Conflicts and Child Abduction. In this context, we have repeatedly visited Japan together and trained colleagues at Osaka University in Cross-Border Family Mediation. I was also able to experience Christian von Baumbach as a trainer for online mediation.

The diverse encounters have given me the opportunity to experience his profound knowledge in the field of intercultural mediation and to observe his appreciative and approachable way of dealing with all parties involved. Mit viel Geduld und Einfühlungsvermögen unterstützt er die Teilnehmer der Veranstaltungen dabei, aufbauend auf ihren jeweiligen Ressourcen eigene Lösungen zur Konfliktlösung zu finden.

It was always a great pleasure to work with him. I will be happy to recommend Christian von Baumbach again and again in the future, both as a trainer and as a mediator and arbitrator.

Mediation in virtual space (IHK Lahn-Dill)

The training on “Mediation in Virtual Space”, which Christian von Baumbach conducted, was very exciting. He understood how to convey the topic in a very practical and clear way and how to conduct an open dialog with the participants. Likewise one could recognize his international experiences of many years. Thank you very much for the informative training, which I can recommend to all mediators who want to further their education in this field.

Cross-Border Family Mediation 2020 (Osaka University)

With 3 training days in January 2020 in Osaka – Japan, I have learnt a lot about the mediation, especially the mediation for Hague abduction cases, and the enforceability of the mediation agreements. Mediation is an effective solution and can be apply in both international and domestic cases. This kind of mediation is out of court, then it helps people more comfortable to express themselves and to be understood more.

The trainers are passionate, experienced for many years and have effective methods of communicating, sharing and creating excitement for the lessons.

I also get acquainted and make friends with many lawyer, investigator, psychologist, law lecturers, prosecutors, researchers, students… from Japan, Thailand, Australia, Sweden, China, German … We can help each other a lot in the future to enhance the mechanism for resolving family disputes.
