Negotiation & Mediation

The advantages of settling disputes through negotiation or mediation (often inappropriately labelled as ‘alternative’ dispute resolution methods) should not be overlooked.  Aside from enormous savings in time and cost, reputational risks can be avoided and relationships preserved.  In practice, the vast majority of disputes are settled through negotiation or mediation, even in circumstances where litigation or arbitration has already commenced.  

We assist clients to achieve settlements through negotiation or mediation by evaluating the strengths and weaknesses of their case at an early stage, identifying their true interests and values and guiding them through the negotiation or mediation process.
