What is Mediation?

Mediation is an effective way of resolving disputes without the need to go to court. It involves an independent third party – a mediator – who helps both sides reach an agreement.

Through a meeting/course of meetings the role of the mediator is to help parties reach a solution to their problem and to arrive at an outcome that both parties are happy to accept. Mediators are not there to take sides, make judgements or give advice. They are simply responsible for encouraging effective communications and building consensus between the parties. The aim of a mediation meeting is to achieve a common sense settlement agreeable to both parties in a case.

Mediation is a voluntary process and will only take place if both parties agree. Anything said in the mediation meetings is confidential and cannot be disclosed to anyone outside of the process or used in the course of formal Court proceedings. If parties are unable to reach agreement, they can still go to court.
The cost of mediation, which depends on the type and nature of the dispute, is shared equally between the parties.

Testimonials
“Thank you very much indeed for the  really amazing service you provided.  I found your approach to helping us find agreement very impressive indeed. It is a valuable service to clients in need of resolution and reconciliation.  You have priced the service very democratically – out of the customary range of legal fees – and I cannot praise enough the careful, humane and considered way you seem to resolve issues.”
