Civil & employment Mediation entails parties attending a separate mediation information and assessment meeting. This meeting is 30-45 minutes in duration.
Attending a mediation information and assessment meeting provides the opportunity for the mediator to assess whether mediation is suitable for both parties and most importantly, for you to gather more information about the next steps and to decide whether mediation can work for you.
The number of mediation sessions after the mediation and advice meeting will depend on the complexity of the dispute.
Disputes can range between 2-8 hours in length.
We offer 2 hourly sessions.
