Mediation Service

Formal Mediation Service from Verification AssociatesMediation is now a pre-requisite to any legal action irrespective of the size of dispute. The courts expect parties to enter into mediation as part of their pre action protcol.

Formal Mediation is a balanced and formal way in which the parties are given the opportunity to meet face to face in a neutral environment to review their dispute and look to routes of resolve, without the huge expense of appearing in the courts to have their dispute decided for them. With current court costs, which are continually increasing, there is an ever growing number of people turning to Mediation. The Mediator is a facilitator of mediation and does not make any decision, that is for the parties to jointly do.
