Civil & Commercial Mediation
A civil commercial dispute, whether it be a few hundred or millions of pounds can financially cripple or even bankrupt a person or business. The longer the dispute goes on the worse it will get, becoming increasingly complicated and more stressful by the nature of the dispute, the amount of parties involved, the amount of individuals, including personal relationships and other businesses that it may affect.
Also the jurisdiction(s) of the dispute(s) with litigation can lead to adverse publicity, wasted productivity, resources, manpower and not to mention commercial relationships. Legal fees will inevitably increase which in all can lead to a daunting prospect for any person, CEO, HR Manager, business or one man band.
In the commercial world time, money and relationships mean everything. Therefor it is imperative to resolve a civil or commercial dispute as soon as possible so that it has minimum impact upon commercial relationships.
