Mediation

Dealing with the issues and disputes that arise from your business or personal life can be time consuming and costly without the added pressure of going to court.

Mediation is an option for parties who would prefer to resolve their issues and disputes outside of court. It’s cost effective and quicker – usually taking hours as opposed to days, weeks or months – and involves the help of a mediator who acts as an impartial third party.

As the mediator is independent and has no financial interest in the outcome of the case, they will advise and test both your cases with a view to resolving your dispute.

Mediation is a confidential process and “without prejudice,” so you’re free to discuss any issues you have as they will not be repeated outside of the mediation. The freedom to air your problems will ideally lead to a resolution and settlement during the mediation. But if this can’t be agreed on by both parties, your arguments in the case will still be preserved as it moves forward.

We have trained mediators in various disciplines of law so can help whatever your situation.
