Mediation, expert determination and ADR
The ability to get to the heart of a dispute means that we are uniquely well qualified to assist in settling disputes and avoiding expensive and protracted litigation. Our experience in acting for clients in mediations allows us to appreciate the differences in approach required in mediating to that required when acting in litigation. Mediators comment that our presence in mediations often makes a positive difference to the outcome.
Our members also act as facilitators, neutral evaluators and mediators. Settling disputes requires an understanding of more than just the legal strengths and weaknesses of a case. We know that the best settlements are achieved when parties look beyond the heat of the immediate dispute and focus on the long-term benefits that a settlement brings to both of them.
Our mediators don’t give up. They appreciate that the complexities of some disputes mean that it is not possible to settle all the issues between the parties in a day. Our mediators are committed to striving to achieve a settlement for as long as it takes.
