See below for a quick guide to Mediation. If you have any further questions about the process please feel free to contact us.
What is Mediation
Mediation is a process facilitated by a qualified mediator using key skills and encouragement to assist the participants in creating their own solutions to the dispute. As a qualified mediator we shall not impose any solutions on either participant.
On average 85% of commercial mediations agree a settlement on the mediation day.
Benefits of Mediation
You remain in control, the participants create their own solution, rather then a solution being imposed by the courts.
Mediation is quicker and more effective then legal proceedings.
Unlike the courts which generally only provide for a financial solution to the dispute, mediation can enable the participants to resolve practical and emotional issues related to the dispute. In many cases one or both participants are looking for an apology, (which is very different from admitting any legal liability) or require the other participant to undertake a certain action or cease a certain action.
The entire mediation day is confidential, unlike the court process.
Participants are given an equal opportunity to have their say and consider solutions.
We provide a friendly approach encouraging participants to move forward
