Chambers appreciates that increasingly parties wish to avoid litigation and prefer to opt for a more affordable  solution, that is conciliatory in nature, to resolve their disputes.

Individual members of chambers are trained in mediation, a form of alternative dispute resolution.

Mediation is where a neutral third party (the mediator) attempts to facilitate a settlement between the parties to a dispute.  This is a confidential process which is without prejudice and only becomes binding when the parties reach an agreement.

1MCB’s mediators are experienced in a wide range of disputes including but not limited to civil, commercial and family, both domestically and internationally.

Please contact the mediation clerks, Mike Alexander or Tim Markham, for further information as to the mediation process, fees or individual CVs of the mediators.
