A Practical Approach
In the best run businesses, it is almost inevitable that at some time disputes will arise - with other businesses, with customers or between co-owners - distracting you from your primary task of getting on with your job and earning a living. Litigation is an expensive, time consuming and lengthy way of dealing with such disputes: usually everyone is unhappy with the result and it damages business relationships.
More and more people are discovering that mediation is the most cost efficient way of dealing with commercial disputes - and the courts actively encourage people to mediate and may well penalise people who refuse.
Our impartial mediators at Practical Mediation are experienced in helping people in conflict work through their difficulties and reach agreement:
all enquiries are dealt with in absolute confidence
we can arrange mediations very quickly - usually in a matter of days
we can provide the information and reassurance needed to get a mediation off the ground
our structured approach will guide the parties through the process
The great thing is that most mediations are successful as viewed by the participants - and mediation often repairs business relationships.
What does a mediation involve?
In business disputes the process usually begins with exchange of written position statements setting out each party's perception of what has happened and the outcome they are looking for, followed by a structured settlement negotiation or conference.
You don't have to attend a mediation with a legal adviser, but we recommend that before mediating you obtain independent legal advice as to your rights and the likely outcomes so that you can make an informed decision as to how you want to proceed and settlement terms.
Our mediators are not practising lawyers and cannot offer legal advice.
