Business Mediation

Our business mediation team can help to resolve any dispute no matter how complicated or bitterly fought

Business Mediation is a way of settling disputes without the delay, stress and expense of going to court. Our commercial mediation services team can help to resolve any dispute no matter how complicated or bitterly fought.

We offer a solution to resolving disputes which is informal, cost effective, and quick. We can arrange business mediations in a matter of days/weeks. Whilst a judge is limited to ruling on the law our specialist mediators can help the parties arrive at more wide ranging, creative and better solutions.

We take time to understand the real issues causing the business legal disputes. As well as recognising that even in business emotions can run high, we are very much alive to the practical and commercial realities. Our flexible approach can help to preserve business relationships despite the dispute. Using our skills and experience we will work tirelessly with the parties to try to find a resolution which everyone can live with.

Our trained mediators are experts in the various legal areas in which they practice. They will guide the parties through the business mediation process to try to make it as straightforward as they can in the hope and expectation that it will be possible to reach a compromise acceptable to everyone.

We have a suite of comfortable rooms available for business mediations ensuring that each party has their own space and can discuss every aspect of the dispute in complete confidence.

Almost any business legal dispute is capable of being settled by mediation. Examples include:

  • Civil/Commercial Mediations
  • Building disputes
  • Commercial lease disputes
  • Company/shareholder disputes
  • Employment disputes
  • Partnership disputes
  • Professional negligence claims

We have particular experience however in the field of property disputes. Newspapers are full of reports of the astonishing costs which can be run up when neighbours end up in court arguing about relatively small areas of land. Property disputes are notoriously bitterly fought, lengthy and expensive if they end up going to trial. In contrast instructing us to mediate your property dispute is a cost effective, efficient and inexpensive way of resolving the matter at an early stage. We can broker a deal on terms which the court would not have had power to impose. This means that the parties can if they all want to maintain a continuing relationship which was perhaps in danger of being destroyed by the dispute.
