We have a specialist team of qualified mediators who are experienced in assisting parties to resolve disputes, however complex or apparently intractable, without the risk and cost of going to trial.
We are firm believers in the virtues of mediation. Statistically, over 80% of mediations result in a settlement. In the right kind of case, a mediation can actually provide a better result than could have been achieved at trial.
The current litigation climate is strongly in favour of mediation, and courts can and do impose costs penalties on parties who refuse or fail to respond to an offer to mediate.
We have a sizeable team of qualified mediators with a range of experience and seniority whose specialist knowledge spans all of chambers’ practice areas.
As barristers, our team members bring with them the independence of the Bar combined with a user-friendly and efficient approach.
Our mediators charge a fixed fee for each mediation, whether it lasts for a whole or for a half day, and you will find that our rates are highly competitive.
Our mediators are happy to travel to you, or alternatively we are able to host mediations here at St John’s Chambers without any additional costs. We have excellent, modern and fully equipped, scalable conference facilities. Our main conference room can comfortably house up to 24 people. Video conferencing is available along with WiFi, and all necessary catering and refreshments can be provided.
Our clerks offer efficient administrative support to ensure that your mediation is handled smoothly and professionally from start to finish.
