Services - Mediation

Mediation is a form of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) and is encouraged by the Courts so that the Parties can attempt to settle matters in the most cost effective and timely manner.

Mediation Advantages:
  • It is a confidential process by agreement.
  • It is non-binding unless an agreement is reduced to writing and as such a decision or Judgment is not thrust upon the Parties.
  • It has an informal process that either Party can discretely attempt to influence.
  • It is not adversarial but evidence and the skills of the Mediator can be used in a persuasive manner.
  • The possibility of maintaining business and personal relationships is far greater than other formal proceedings.
  • It gives the Parties a better chance of understanding the strengths and weaknesses of its own position and that of the other side.
  • Usually the Mediation will take place over a single day with perhaps say two or three days preparation beforehand for the Parties and the Mediator.
  • The overall cost of the Mediation process is far less than other formal proceedings.
  • As high as 85% of disputes that use mediation settle, if not on the day shortly afterwards.
  • The scope for the shape and nature of any agreement is far reaching and may sit outside the normal contract remedies.
