Mediation is a quick, inexpensive and confidential process that allows you to find solutions to your dispute whilst preserving relationships and reputations.  It allows you to build a solution suited to your needs rather than risk the uncertainties of an imposed potentially damaging legal ruling. In mediation, we assist you in exploring creative options to resolve the substance of the dispute and preserve the possiblity of a working relationship. Mediation can be especially effective in cross-jurisdictional disputes, avoiding the challenges of dealing with foreign law courts.
