Mediation allows parties in dispute to explore the possible paths to resolution
Compared to litigation, mediation offers a number of advantages:-
It takes place at a time of your choice and usually lasts a day
Costs are fixed and shared by the participants
Parties can speak and be heard in a safe, relaxed and informal environment
Those affected control the outcome, not the courts
The process is confidential, impartial and without prejudice

How Mediation Works
Email or call, tell me more about your dispute and how I can help.
If you decide mediation suitable I will then send you a referral form. This provides details of the parties involved and a brief history of the dispute
I will then agree and confirm a time and date for the mediation. This can be at a location of your choice.
The parties will then attend the mediation. It will normally last the whole day so please be prepared.
Agreements can be drafted and signed on the day.
What will it cost ?
All costs are per party based on the higher of the claim or counter claim.
Full day mediation for claims less than £50,000 - £500 per party
Claim over £50,000 - 1% of claim per party
The cost of the venue and refreshments is excluded.
I can help source a venue if required which will need two rooms as a minimum and available 30 minutes before start.
Mediation can be arranged with as little as a weeks notice.
