Mediation Experience DaysIn conjunction with Hunt ADR
All the mediators on the Promediate panel are passionate about helping people resolve their disputes and move on with their lives.
Did you know that the settlement rate of cases in the High Court Chancery Division ranges between 92.3% – 94.4%? Typically, the majority of cases issued in any Court end up being settled before trial. With the stress and time involved in Court and Tribunal proceedings, Court fees increasing, lawyers’ costs being irrecoverable in Small Claims and Employment Tribunals and the Courts penalising litigants for not mediating, people are interested in settling at an early stage.
We have mediators with expertise in the following sectors:
- Insurance and Commercial Litigation
- Professional Negligence
- Property Disputes including Landlord & Tenant and Neighbour disputes
- Contentious probate
- Workplace and employment
- Corporate shareholder, partnership and business sale and purchase
- Clinical Negligence and Personal Injury
Our specialist mediators have an unrivalled in depth knowledge of dispute resolution and have been or are involved with the following organisations:
- The Law Society Civil Justice Committee
- The board of the Civil Mediation Council

The message mediators are sending out is that we are open for business and ready to mediate whether it be online by telephone. The jury is out as to whether it is now possible to mediate in person. Some courts are holding jury trials again, but attendance is a legal...

Mediation Set up Service
If you contact us without first getting the other person or business to agree to use our service, we will contact them to try to obtain their agreement.
In those circumstances we do charge a set up fee for this service. It is sometimes possible to resolve your dispute informally after one or two calls without even booking a mediation appointment!
When we receive an initial enquiry we crack on immediately trying to make contact with the other side in the dispute, emailing info, leaving messages on the telephone and even text messages. Our working hours are never 9-5 and we will often make contact at a time that meets the needs of our clients, evenings and weekends included.
Sometimes one side requires key information before they will agree to mediate. We will often liaise with all concerned to make sure this is shared. Once contact is made there will be further to-ing and fro-ing to set up the appointment, documents sent out and making sure everyone is comfortable with the process.
We charge the following fees for contacting the other party in this way:
Value of Goods or services:
Up to £1,000 – £10 plus VAT
– £2,500 – £25 plus VAT
– £2,500 upwards – £50 plus VAT
