Mrs Rahim is an accredited mediator and our firm are able to offer independent mediation. Mediation is a key form of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR). Alternative here means an alternative to having a decision imposed by a judge in court.
Mediation is a consensual process, based on selfdetermination that involves the participants in the dispute, together with their lawyers, advisers, or supporters, if they have any, meeting with a neutral third person.
The mutual aim is to find a resolution to the dispute or problem that the participants face It is a confidential and without prejudice activity that allows the participants to explore the full range of potential solutions in a safe environment. The neutral, or mediator, may encourage the use of principled negotiation, based upon reason and objective criteria.
The mediator may reality test the perceptions of fact, advantage, risk, and cost; and thereby assist the participants to find a mutually acceptable solution.
