If you are involved in a dispute, which is personal and sensitive, and you do not want to go to Court, mediation may be the solution that you are looking for.
Mediation is a voluntary process that enables those involved to reach an agreement, which satisfies everyone. Once all the parties agree that this is the way forward, an independent mediator will be appointed by agreement of the parties.
Our dispute resolution lawyers highly recommend it. They have been part of many successful mediations; allowing clients to be an active part in the process.
Mediation is proving increasingly popular as a way of resolving disputes for quite a few reasons:
- it generally takes less time than litigation
- it is not adversarial and allows everyone to take an active part in the decision making process, rather than a decision being imposed on them by the Court
- it is a confidential process which means that nothing from it can be subsequently used in Court if the process breaks down
- it is more cost effective than going to Court.
If you are in a dispute and you can’t resolve it yourself but do not want to go to Court to fight it, you should contact us for more information. We will work with you to get the best outcome for you.
