Mediation is a well established and cost effective process for resolving disputes.
CIVIL AND COMMERICAL MEDIATION
Harrisons’ dedicated team of mediators offer a method of resolving business and personal disputes without recourse to expensive and time consuming legal action.
WHAT IS MEDIATION?
Mediation involves an independent third party – a mediator – who helps both sides come to a commercially agreed solution to their dispute.
Mediation is a voluntary process which takes place in private and is confidential. Mediators do no make judgments and will not direct you towards a particular outcome or express a personal opinion.
A mediator will help you and the other party come to an agreement by asking questions and clarifying and exploring options for resolving your dispute. If for any reason you don’t want to meet the other side, the mediator will act as a go between.
Most mediations are resolved within one day meaning the process is significantly quicker, cheaper than Court proceedings. Mediators are able to explore creative solutions with the parties that a Court could not order. It is also a much less stressful process for the participants than the Court process and can help preserve relationships whether business or personal.
