There is often a lot at stake in a dispute. Whether it is a professional or personal issue, speed of resolution is of paramount importance in order for you to reach a fair result, move on and avoid a protracted and costly battle.
Mediation is a popular and private out of court way of resolving disputes, encouraged by courts in various jurisdictions. It can help to preserve commercial, family and other relationships from being damaged by litigation and it often assists in resolving matters quickly and economically.
The process is confidential and encourages all manner of creative solutions, which would not be available to a court determining whether a claim succeeds or not. This can help to resolve a dispute in an imaginative way.
If you find yourself caught in a complex family situation or challenging commercial relationship, mediation can offer you the opportunity to work out an amicable resolution. We will work with you to understand your objectives and what can be achieved through mediation, so you have a clear strategy.
Choosing a non-court option can save you time, money and it also will minimise the trauma of a dispute and protect you against invasion of your privacy. Mediation has been a particularly useful mechanism in the resolution of disputes during the COVID-19 pandemic. Set up quickly and conducted virtually – without any protracted court intervention – mediations can help you find a solution, and move on. Looking beyond the pandemic, this means that you will have the choice of partaking in mediations either remotely or in person, whichever option is best for you.
We have dispute resolution teams in New York, London, Milan, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Singapore and Hong Kong, and a number of experts at your disposal who will help you explore and develop unique ideas to reach an effective conclusion. As well as being accredited mediators, our experts have considerable experience in conducting litigation and arbitration matters, experience which shapes our understanding of how mediation can be better used to resolve your dispute.
Whilst we will always try to resolve the issue for you through mediation and settlement discussions, if this does not deliver the result you hoped to achieve, it often assists the parties in agreeing a settlement, so it is worth considering.
