Civil Mediation

Although we have a wealth of Court and Tribunal experience, we understand the importance of exploring alternatives to litigation.

A primary and popular form of Alternative Dispute Resolution is Mediation, which can be much quicker, less stressful and cheaper than going to court.

Ben Barber is head of our Dispute Resolution Team and an Accredited Mediator with the London School of Mediation. He is a keen and enthusiastic mediator.

Mediation is:

A completely voluntary and confidential form of alternative dispute resolution.

It involves an independent, impartial person helping two or more individuals or groups (separately or together) reach a solution that’s acceptable to everyone.

Mediators are not engaged to make judgments or decide on matters – they ask questions and assist parties in understanding issues. A good mediator will help a party clarify their objectives and identify the important issues in resolving a difference or dispute.
