Commercial Mediation Services
Commercial mediation is where two business have a dispute about a commercial transaction. The traditional way to resolve such disputes is to hire lawyers in order for a court to decide. This is expensive and time consuming; it is common for parties to spend £20,000 or more for legal representation for a case with a disputed value of only £100,000, with no certainty at all about whether the case will be won or lost in court, let alone who pays for the legal costs.
Mediation allows the parties to avoid the glare of publicity with complete confidentiality. It is a very popular way of resolving disputes, which even many solicitors recognise and approve of.
The latest surveys suggest around 16,000 commercial cases are mediated each year, which confirms that it is recognised as a valuable method of avoiding going to court.
