Benefits of Mediation
We understand the benefits that can be gained by embracing Mediation as a form of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) by offering parties to a dispute, the opportunity to meet in a private and confidential setting with an impartial Mediator and attempt to resolve their dispute in an amicable and speedy manner.
The Mediation process is rapidly growing in Ireland and is recognised as an important new forum that enables parties to avoid the need of high risk and costly legal proceedings.
The Mediation Act, 2017 came into law in Ireland in January 2018. The purpose of this welcomed piece of legislation is to allow parties to a dispute to avoid the costs of litigation and to reduce the number of disputes coming before the Courts. There is now an obligation on all solicitors to advise their clients of the option of engaging in Mediation prior to the issuing of legal proceedings.
Please contact us if you have any queries or would like to discuss the option of Mediation.
