Are you entangled in a conflict and you would like to find a mutually acceptable solution? In some instances, going to court is not the best choice. Mediation is an alternative.

Under the guidance of an impartial mediator, the parties talk to each other in order to resolve their issues. The mediator informs the parties about the relevant legal aspects and supervises the negotiation process, which focuses more on the parties’ underlying common interests instead of the viewpoints that keep them divided. The mediator allows both parties to play an active role and gives them all the space they need to use their creativity to find a settlement. Naturally, our mediation services also include accurate records of the agreements between the parties.

Mediation offers a way forward in business as well as personal conflicts. Our primary concern in this respect is to maintain the relationship between the parties.

The advantages of mediation are obvious: quick, informal and less costly than going to court. Mediation can keep relationships intact or repair them. It goes without saying that a solution that the parties mutually agree to has maximum acceptance.

Sometimes, talking is better that litigating. See our mediators further down on this page.
