Helping you with commercial mediation

Increasingly businesses are taking advantage of the power of mediation. Commercial mediation is typically a quicker, cheaper and a confidential way of resolving disputes which avoids the high cost and uncertainty of court proceedings.

What is commercial mediation?

Commercial mediation is a form of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) and is a confidential voluntary process which is overseen and directed by a neutral trained and accredited mediator. The role of the mediator is to assist people and/or organisations to reach an agreement to settle and the terms of this agreement. It is not the role of the mediator to influence any part of the process.

Our commercial mediation services

Commercial mediation is an effective and increasingly popular choice for businesses and business owners involved in a dispute but who wish to avoid litigation. In comparison to commercial litigation, commercial mediation offers many benefits, not least in terms of cost, time and risk.

Seeking the help of our trained and ADR Group/CEDR accredited commercial mediators is a positive step towards solving your commercial dispute in a controlled and confidential manner. Steele Raymond’s commercial mediation services are designed to help you and the other parties involved to reach an agreement through constructive discourse and negotiation.
