Court litigation can be time consuming, expensive, and emotionally draining. Most disputes can be settled by bringing the ongoing problem to the forefront by sitting down with a mediator and being able to talk freely but in strict confidence and without prejudice.
Parties to a dispute need to sometimes bring all matters to the table with assurances of confidentiality and without prejudicing their case. It gives all the opportunity to bring the matter to the forefront rather than wait for trial and to pay continuing costs of litigation. Parties know that if the matter is not settled at mediation, then litigation or other legal proceedings will follow which will create further worry and stress. It gives all the opportunity to have the disputed matter taken off their minds so that they can go on to enjoy life.
Mediators encourage parties to consult with their Barrister or Solicitor before selecting Mediation for a resolution of their problem. We have a high success rate in having parties reach a binding resolution to their issues.
Both parties should be willing to attend a mediation session. However, if you are willing to mediate but the other party is reluctant to mediate, the mediator can notify the other party that they have been contacted by you and that you wish to see if the matter can be resolved quickly through mediation.
Most all disputes can be mediated and resolved including (without limitation):
- SIMPLE OR VERY COMPLEX BUSINESS DISPUTES
- MATTERS THAT NEED TO BE KEPT STRICTLY CONFIDENTIAL AND RESOLVED QUICKLY
- RESOLUTION OF COSTLY ONGOING LITIGATION
- CONSTRUCTION AND BUILDING REPAIR DISPUTES
