All of our mediators are able to mediate online using Zoom/Microsoft Teams.
Online mediations are easy to arrange and attend while working from home without the risk and cost of travel.
Here is a link to a video of an online mediation simulation:
HOW DOES ONLINE MEDIATION WORK?
Online mediation is easy to arrange. These are the steps to follow;
1. Contact us to select a mediator and with dates of availability.
2. We send out the mediation agreement and a link to Zoom. Zoom can be downloaded for free www.zoom.us
3. The parties email the key documents and position statements to us prior to the mediation and they are kept secure.
4. On the day you log in to Zoom and the mediator will start the process with the usual opening session and explain how the mediation will proceed.
5. The mediator can speak to each party separately and each virtual room can involve more than one person so they do not need to be in the same place. There is a virtual wall between the rooms.
6. Documents can be viewed and amended on screen if required. This includes any settlement agreement which can be signed online or emailed between the parties.
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.
We offer mediation services to individuals, companies, solicitors, insurers and public sector bodies. Our mediators have also delivered seminars and training. We abide by the European Code of Conduct for Mediators and have over £1M professional indemnity cover. We can organise time limited, full or half day mediations and can also arrange telephone and online mediations. We have a competitive scale of charges appropriate for each case.

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
