Mediation is a popular and relatively new form of dispute resolution. Our experience is that it often works, and in appropriate cases the "up front" investment is worthwhile. While the actual mediation may not in itself provide a solution, often it gives the parties an opportunity to meet on neutral territory, assess each other’s commercial objectives and think in a positive way as to the resolution of the differences between them. This often leads to a commercial reassessment by the parties and an amicable resolution shortly after the mediation has taken place.

We encourage mediation in appropriate cases and we can provide in our Oxfordshire headquarters a unique venue where parties can come together in an “out of town” atmosphere conducive to reaching agreement.
