Mediation

  • Mediation of disputes can provide solutions which meet the needs of all parties, cost much less than litigation, are dealt with more speedily, avoid disruption to business, remove the debilitating effects of conflict and can restore professional and personal relationships
  • Disputes in the business, construction, workplace, community and family sectors cost billions of dollars per annum in legal and other fees
  • Indirect costs to organisations and individuals in terms of disruption, loss of productive time and reputational risks are similar
  • Even the simplest dispute can be expected to take at least a year to reach a court decision and requires significant time input from all litigants
  • The consequences of ‘losing’ can be serious to both business and individuals
  • Private sector companies and individuals have much to gain by intervening early in conflict situations by using mediation
  • Public sector organisations can also benefit from massive savings in time, money and efficiency
