Mediation – our new service

12 July 2016

We have launched a new service which offers people an alternative to going to court.

Following the substantial increase in court fees, as well as the reduction in the number of courts, our accredited mediators can provide a flexible, quick and cost effective approach to resolving all civil and commercial disputes of any size.

According to the ADR Group, which we are members of, over 80% of mediations settle on the day or shortly afterwards, making it an attractive alternative to drawn out and costly litigation. A mediation normally takes place over one day with all parties present and can be arranged very quickly. Mediation may also help businesses preserve commercial relationships with those with whom they are in dispute, as it needs a collaborative approach to reach a result.

Nick is a practitioner with over 30 years’ experience. He specialises in commercial contract disputes and has particular expertise in contentious landlord and tenant work. Legal directory Chambers rates Nick for his property litigation expertise. They say he is: “‘highly knowledgeable’ and does a ‘very good job of handling clients,’ according to interviewees”. Nick is also ranked in the Legal 500 for his work in commercial disputes as well as property litigation. They quote that he “gives ‘careful, clear advice to clients’” and “understands clients’ needs”.
