About mediation


  • What is it? Mediation can resolve longstanding problems. It is a relatively quick and informal process where an independent neutral (the mediator) holds a series of individual and joint meetings with the parties in dispute to help them come to an agreed settlement. Mediation is confidential, with any agreement (in commercial mediations) only becoming binding upon signature.
  • Why consider it? Mediation can save time, stress, uncertainty and expense. It provides an alternative to settling a dispute through the courts and tribunals. It can help rebuild broken relationships. In mediation, the parties keep control and they alone decide if and how the dispute is resolved.
  • When can it be used? Many disputes can be resolved by mediation. Although most mediations take place over one day, it is a flexible process and depending on the case, Carolyn can advise whether telephone or time limited mediation may be appropriate.
