We can advise clients in relation to all of their options as to how best a settlement can be reached. This enables clients to make an informed decision as to how they wish to proceed.
Ways in which parties might reach a settlement can include, where appropriate, making a referral to mediation. This is an alternative mechanism by which the parties can sit down and try and discuss their finances with an independent third party to try and see if they can reach an agreement. We can advise as to how the medication process works, and where appropriate make a referral and also advise clients of what happens following mediation. We will continue to assist and advise our clients throughout the mediation process.
Similarly, we can also advise as to alternative methods of dispute resolution, as an alternative to the Court process in order to keep parties costs to a minimum.
