Mediation Services London
RICS accredited mediator
Construction disputes between clients and contractors are not uncommon during a project. Often the dispute can be resolved amicably by both parties, although sometimes this is not possible. Disputes can prove costly and time-consuming, causing stress and upset to those involved.
Mediation between two disputing parties is an increasingly popular alternative to lengthy and costly adjudication or litigation claims. Mediation has a high success rate in agreeing to a settlement between disputing parties, with 75% of cases being settled on the same day, and a further 11% being settled within two weeks of the initial mediation date. As a result, courts take a dim view of those parties who refuse to enter the mediation process prior to legal proceedings and can penalise parties in terms of costs when passing judgements.
Your mediator will be a RICS Accredited Mediator and Member of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators with the relevant training, expertise and experience of the construction industry to help both parties achieve a satisfactory outcome.
