Mediation

The Mediator provides a safe, confidential and inspirational environment.

Mediation is a voluntary process in which two or more people involved in a dispute meet and with the help of a Mediator, work out their own solution to their dispute. Mediation differs from the Court process in that the power remains with the parties. It is a confidential process that facilitates the parties to explore the issues of their dispute and have their interests reconciled.  Our mediation forum is without prejudice unless otherwise agreed by the parties. It is also cost-efficient especially when it comes to agreeing with terms for a Separation or Divorce. Lawyers may remain involved, but we believe the mediated agreement is a more creative and less acrimonious resolution because it is their agreement and more likely to stand the test of time. As mediators, we provide a structured process which is flexible. Our skills as mediators will the parties explore a range of solutions to reach a negotiated settlement of their dispute. In workplace conflict situations, mediation provides early intervention and resolution option that is less stressful and less expensive than engaging in adversarial systems. Mediation provides a safe place for parties to a dispute to deal directly with each other where the resolution of the dispute remains in their control and where future working relationships can be maintained and protected.

How does Mediation work?

The structure of the mediation process will vary depending on the type of dispute. Generally, an agreement to Mediate will be signed at the outset and the mediator will then meet with the parties together and/or separately, over the course of one day or in sessions over a number of days or weeks. Solicitors or other advisors may attend mediation sessions if required. If an agreement is reached this will be recorded and signed at the mediation, and further steps which may be required to make the agreement legally enforceable may follow.
