Mediation is an informal, flexible and cost effective process which is entirely confidential and ‘without prejudice’. It has a high success rate. Where successful, it produces a settlement which both parties agree to rather than being imposed by a court, avoids the delays and emotional expense of litigation, removes the risks of litigation and it can help restore business and personal relationships that might otherwise be undermined by the tensions of litigation. It can be arranged, and concluded, quickly. Our service is convenient, flexible and economic.
There are many advantages to mediation:
- It is a flexible, speedy, confidential, and less adversarial process
- It has a high success rate in a wide variety of disputes
- It is cost effective
- It is a non-binding procedure
- It allows for flexible solutions and settlements
- It is suited to situations where the parties wish to restore their relationship
