MEDIATION FOR COMMERCIAL DISPUTES
Stuck in a dispute?
SAVE TIME MOVE FORWARD ENHANCE MORALE INCREASE PRODUCTIVITY SAVE MONEY
JWF Mediation can mediate your business dispute for you swiftly, in a confidential and without prejudice environment, exploring all possible solutions for settlement and help you reach settlement in a more cost effective way than legal proceedings. A case can be referred to mediation at any stage before or during litigation or arbitration and the earlier it takes place the greater the savings.
During mediation, offers can be made without detriment to your position should the matter continue to court. Participants stay in control of the possible outcomes at all times and results are achieved that satisfy everyone – results which, in many cases, are beyond the power of lawyers and the courts to achieve. This approach to dispute resolution as oppose to litigation, encourages ongoing relations where these may be desired.
There are no losers in mediation – it is collaborative problem solving.
What mediation is not: A process of compromise. A ‘tick box’ exercise. A process that applies pressure. An imposed outcome. Arbitration. You are always in control.
The UK legal system firmly encourages settlement by mediation. Choosing not to mediate – or to introduce it only late in legal proceedings – can result in legal costs being unrecoverable.
