I’ve decided to mediate what next?

You have made the decision that mediating would be a more cost effective and timely route for resolution. When both parties in a dispute agree to mediate that’s great. But for many people that’s where they hit an impasse. What do you do next? How do you approach the other party? What do you say? In such scenarios I offer the following two low-cost services which assist in raising the suggestion of mediation with the other party and / or in many cases these introductions have ‘started’ the mediation or even triggered a settlement discussion. These options do not guarantee a party will mediate and do not guarantee the other party will respond. What they do provide is a structured way to approach the subject in what are often difficult or unknown circumstances. If you have any questions please contact me here.

 

Option A £35

I provide you with a template letter / email suggesting mediation, outlining details and updated to reflect your dispute. The letter / email would be reviewed by you and I, before I send in MY name.

Option B £50

Includes Option A PLUS one follow up letter / email (sent 2 weeks after initial letter / email) PLUS two phone calls from me to other party (one week after follow up letter / email and 2nd call made 3 days after 1st call).

NOTE

in many cases these introductions have ‘started’ the mediation or even triggered a settlement discussion
