Litigation carries risk: risk of losing and risk of being ordered to pay substantial legal fees. As any good lawyer will tell you, this is so whatever the strength of your case: litigation is simply not risk free. The process of mediation helps you to de-risk your dispute. If you settle at mediation itself, you enjoy certainty of outcome and, in many cases, a commercially acceptable settlement which a Court simply cannot give you. Even if you do not settle at mediation, the process helps the parties to identify what the core issues between them really are, to focus on those issues, and settlement often follows soon after.
Geraint has many years of experience of every type of dispute between every different type of business and individual. He is warm, approachable and down to earth. As a primarily "people person", he quickly wins the confidence of the parties, helping them to feel at ease and get to the nub of the issues between them.
Prior to the COVID pandemic, online mediation was almost unheard of yet is rapidly becoming the norm. I offer a complete online mediation facility using Zoom or Teams. I make use of private online meeting rooms so that you (and your legal team, if you have one) can be assured of complete confidentiality throughout.
I am still very happy to conduct face to face mediations (subject to government rules) for those who prefer it. I can come to your offices or can also arrange private meeting rooms in a number of cities across the UK, which are charged to the parties at cost.
Please do get in touch by phone or email if you have any questions relating to mediation, for a fee quote for multi party mediations, or to book a mediation appointment. Alternatively, complete your details in the "Send a Message" panel and I will get back to you.
