Civil & Commercial Mediation

I want to make the mediation processes as simple and as accessible as possible. 

My Guidance Note on Organising a Civil or Commercial Mediation provides information on the following:

  • Selecting a mediator
  • Choosing a mediation venue
  • The Mediation Agreement.

Preparing for Mediation

Preparation is key to a successful mediation; the better you prepare the more likely you are to reach a settlement.

The Guidance Note on Preparing for a Mediation (Civil) provides information on the following:

  • Mediation bundles (paperwork)
  • Written position statements
  • Preparing your opening statement
  • Pre-mediation conversations with the mediator

Please contact us if you have any further questions on what you need to do to prepare for your mediation.

Mediation Day

I want to ensure that the mediation day goes smoothly and does produce any surprises for you.

The Guidance Note on The Mediation Day (Civil) provides information on the following:

  • Arrival and settling in
  • Opening joint session
  • Private (caucus) sessions
  • Concluding the Mediation

Please contact us if you have any further questions on how the mediation day will proceed.

Online Mediation

The use of online mediation became very popular throughout the Pandemic and I continue to offer this service in cases where face to face mediation is difficult. 

Although the concept of online mediations may be unfamiliar to some, I have found that they work well and the systems I use are easy to use and access.

I am happy to use either Zoom or Teams with both platforms allowing for a normal online meeting together with private 'breakout' rooms for the participants.  These 'breakout' rooms closely simulate the private meeting room arrangements of a face-to-face mediation as different parties and their representatives can be brought together and can ‘meet’ privately with the mediator in their private 'breakout' rooms.
