Mediation

As experienced litigation specialists, we understand that disputes are sometimes necessary. But it’s vitally important to look at dispute resolution.

Mediation is a way to mend relationships. It is a facilitated process conducted by a neutral person. As mediators, we introduce objectivity, establish common ground, and help the parties to identify solutions.

When disputes arise they are invariably time consuming and costly. Conflict disrupts focus and drains energy and resources. We know it can also have a profound effect on the health and wellbeing of those involved. We therefore focus on a ‘mitigate, not litigate’ approach to protect the welfare of our clients.

How we help

We help in a variety of settings, including during board level conflict, tensions between trustees and senior managers, breakdowns in the line-management relationships, conflict between colleagues, commercial disputes, or disputes with stakeholders.

Mediation is a highly effective way of resolving conflict. If there is conflict within your organisation that is disruptive and counter-productive, please do contact our specialist mediators to explore how we can help.
