Civil mediation. Commercial mediation services.

How does it work?

Adversarial court proceedings with their inherent litigation risk can be very stressful and expensive.  Commercial mediation services by Farnham Mediation are swifter, less stressful and less expensive. Before the first session, each party will have provided a position statement to the mediator on a confidential basis to be disclosed only if authorised. Our mediation process can bridge positions which appear entrenched, provided parties are committed to reaching a mutually acceptable agreement.

Most commercial mediations last less than a day. The mediation starts with a joint session between the mediator and the parties, who may have their solicitor or counsel. Then the parties separate and the mediator will speak to each on their own throughout the day to help the parties work towards a settlement.

Farnham Mediation’s Commercial mediators are experienced barristers and solicitors. A majority of cases can be resolved in a day.

“We were given a genuinely Rolls Royce service by a top class mediator. Henry Minto is a highly skilful and experienced practitioner and the client was very very fortunate to have such a distinguished mediator.”
