Mediation is a cost and time-effective alternative to the courts for settling family, civil and commercial disputes. Mediation and legal representations are confidential processes, so both parties can be assured that nothing discussed affects any other area of their lives or businesses.
Whatever is discussed or agreed during mediation remain confidential and cannot be used by any of the parties against the other in court, should parties fail to reach an agreement.
At Prime Solicitors, our Mediators are impartial, skilled and knowledgeable. Their role is to help the parties reach an agreement that benefits everyone or is not detrimental to either party. Mediators do not make decisions and cannot offer legal advice. They ensure fair play and that both sides can air their grievances and be listened to.
When children are involved in Mediation
At Prime Solicitors we take the welfare of the children and young persons as fundamental and this take the centre stage when representing their parents especially when their relationship has broken down. All children, regardless of age, disability, gender, racial heritage, religious belief, sexual orientation or identity, have the right to equal protection from all types of harm or abuse. We aim to work in partnership with children, young people, their parents, carers and other agencies in promoting their welfare.
Civil and Commercial Mediation
When things do not go according to plan, it can cause tensions that are best settled by a neutral third party. We can help facilitate an outcome that works for both parties, ensuring that everyone is heard. Where you need a solicitor to represent you and your interests in mediation, we can ensure that your case is presented clearly, giving you the best possible chance of a positive outcome.
If you are looking for a mediator for civil or commercial mediation, at Prime Solicitors, we can provide such a service. We will ensure fairness throughout the mediation process. If, however, you are about to enter mediation with a separate third party and require legal advice, we can also provide this. As a general code of practice, we cannot mediate and offer legal advice to the same party over the same matter.
