Commercial Mediation & Alternative Dispute Resolution

Mediation can be used in most disputes so the disputes referred to us to mediate are many and varied. They have included large construction cases where clients have alleged negligence against both contractors and their professional advisers; disputes as to the quality of goods; cases involving breach of competition covenants; disputes over the quality of educational services provided; tax disputes; disputes over mortgages; landlord and tenant claims, including dilapidation issues and boundary disputes, often where rights of way are involved.
