Our experienced mediation team can support commercial businesses through every step of the mediation process, saving time and money.
Mediation can help organisations resolve disputes without the disruption of contested court proceedings, as well as limit the potential damage to an organisation’s reputation. We provide experienced, insightful representation and guidance throughout the process of mediation. Mediation often provides solutions in seemingly impossibly situations.
At an early stage, judges encourage attempting mediation as a means to resolve disputes and in many cases it is very successful, with around 75%-80% of cases reaching a binding settlement.
At Anthony Collins Solicitors we use our extensive sector knowledge and experience of working with social enterprises, co-operatives, mutuals, community-led enterprises, public-sector spin outs, tenant management organisations and values-driven businesses to guide social business organisations through the mediation process and to reach workable outcomes.
