In normal commercial disputes we would highly recommend that you firstly explore the negotiation and then the mediation option. We would also recommend that a mediation clause be considered when drafting most new business contracts, where appropriate.
Because in our experience mediation works!
Even when it doesn’t work on the day, it nearly always assists in moving matters towards a conclusion.

We will be happy to assist you with any aspect of commercial matters that involve ADR (Alternative Dispute Resolutions).
