What is mediation?
Mediation is a voluntary process in which parties try to resolve their dispute at a confidential meeting at which a trained mediator will explore with the parties the options for settlement.
What are the advantages of mediation?
Court proceedings can be very expensive and take many years to complete. The options at court are also limited with parties at the mercy of a judge to what result is awarded. However, with mediation the parties are the architects of the solution and can create a result that is beneficial to both parties in a way that a court could not. As you are able to mediate at any time in a dispute, your problem can be over faster and more cost effectively than if you went to court.
Who would the mediator be?
Our mediators are highly trained with the London School of Mediation. They have extensive experience in all types of civil dispute acquired over many years.
How much will it cost?
Mediation is best undertaken at an early stage in your case as it prevents costs from escalating. The fees vary depending on the value of the dispute, the length and location of the mediation. Remember though that the fee is split equally between the parties and will always be less than pursuing your case through the court process. Please use the contact link for fee details.
