In Place of Strife

The Mediation Chambers

Commercial and Business

It doesn’t matter if you’re a multi-national corporation, a tech start-up or an SME: nobody welcomes litigation. Increasingly, once the strengths and weaknesses of respective positions are understood, businesses are recognising that mediation can resolve destructive disputes without the drain on time and resources that going to court can involve. Amongst other things, the process also provides:

  • a confidential environment where senior executives can ensure their concerns are understood
  • a forum for principled negotiation with the help of a mediator where the outcome is not prescribed by the legal issues
  • the potential for restoring or preserving commercial relationships
  • The chance of an early settlement with savings of costs and management time
  • a confidential settlement, protected from the public scrutiny of legal proceedings

In Place of Strife commercial mediators regularly help businesses to resolve every kind of disagreement from contractual disputes (especially concerning Sale of Goods) to Commercial Agents (Council Directive) Regulations 1993, and franchising. Please get in touch if you’d like to speak to one of them.
