    What is mediation?

    Mediation is a method of “Alternative Dispute Resolution”, which involves the process of two parties (or more), trying to resolve a dispute with the involvement of an independent, professional, and non-biased third party being brought in to assist.

    Why choose mediation?

    Mediation helps to retain relationships, either individual, partnerships, companies or families, the latter normally applying in the field of contentious probate disputes.

    The courts are also increasingly encouraging parties to mediate than to take matters to court especially with the current wait of around 12 months for a court to determine a dispute. Our mediator can therefore guide the parties to explore settlement options.

    How can we help?

    Rajinder Rai is accredited with the Civil Mediation Council and adopts the European Code of Ethics, being independent, and a qualified practising solicitor with over 20 years experience in the field of legal disputes. Rajinder knows the court process, procedure, costs and the way in which the courts deal with such disputes.

    We are able to offer mediation either face to face, by telephone, and/or virtually. We are flexible, competitive, and can arrange an appointment at short notice provided both parties in the dispute are ready to proceed to a mediation appointment.

    What are the next steps?

    Please contact us today if you are interested in mediating with someone whom you are locked into a dispute with. Our mediator will then assess the nature of your dispute, and contact the other party if they have not agreed to mediate with you. For a faster process, it is best to contact us once the other party has agreed to mediation.

    We can then arrange to set up a Mediation Appointment that is mutually convenient to all parties once both parties have signed a “Mediation and Confidentiality Agreement”, and an agreed fee has been taken for the appointment itself. Our mediator will need to be provided with a mediation bundle consisting of ideally, a brief case summary; relevant correspondence between the parties, (including those involving negotiation); and documents relevant to the dispute at hand, in readiness for the mediation appointment itself.

    If the mediation appointment is successful, our mediator may assist you in preparing a Settlement Agreement for you to work to, or take away to your respective lawyers. You will then have to carry out the terms of the agreement having signed this document, which will bind both parties legally to carry out the terms of it.

    Over the period I found you to be professional, assured, confident and well-prepared dealing with the technical and complex. Sometimes issues were almost forensic. This was complimented by your ability to understand the personal anxiety that a client experiences as the process takes different directions and help with an empathetic approach which was much valued.
