Mediation is a growing area in civil, employment and commercial disputes and both businesses and individuals are realising that there is another way of resolving issues which avoids the time, expense and stress of taking or defending a claim through the Courts. With this in mind we have now established our mediation service which we are sure will be of interest to many businesses, institutions and their advisors.
We can provide a mediation service which will be efficient, professional, cost effective and convenient. Most of all, it will give you another option to resolve the dispute in which you may be involved or upon which you are advising. Please see Schedule of charges.
We have a range of mediators, all of whom are solicitors and/or partners and they are often recognised as leaders in their respective fields.
If you think we can help you then please complete the mediation referral form and/or contact Denise Dodson who deals with all initial enquiries and can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephone on 023 8048 2273.
When the decision has been made to separate, mediation can be the most sensible and cost effective way to sort out issues arising from the breakdown of the relationship.
These issues include :
Our mediators are experienced and have a wealth of knowledge in both financial and children work. They are used to dealing with some of the most complex areas of law and bring these skills into their mediation practice.
All mediators are Resolution trained and in complex cases understand the need to work closely with the couple’s lawyers and where relevant other professionals. We aim to achieve an early resolution, minimise conflict and avoid lengthy and costly court cases.
Since procedural changes were introduced in April 2011 we normally recommend that mediation begins by undertaking a mediation information and assessment meeting (MIAMs) the cost of which is £87 plus VAT for an individual appointment, or £130 plus VAT for a couple. If you proceed with mediation this will be refunded against your mediation costs.
If you need to have a MIAMs only, we will offer you an appointment within 48 hours.
We’d love to hear from you. Please fill in the contact form below or call us at one of our offices.
