At Brown McComish Solicitors we encourage clients to mediate disputes at the earliest opportunity.
In the early 1990’s the Supreme Court ran a pilot program where matters awaiting trial were referred to mediation. The trial proved very successful and almost all civil disputes are now referred for mediation or conferencing by the courts. Whilst not all matters resolve at mediation, mediation offers many advantages over a judicial determination. There is a substantial saving in legal costs and parties can tailor the outcome to suit.
In many circumstances mediations can be arranged before legal proceedings are commenced. Pre litigation mediation now often occurs in estate and family law matters.
Tony Brown is a qualified mediator and is on the list of law institute approved mediators. Tony has acted as a mediator in many commercial, estate and family law disputes for over ten years.
