Our experienced mediation team can support community organisations through every step of the mediation process, saving time and money.
In the early stages of dispute resolution, judges strongly encourage mediation as an alternative means of dispute resolution to costly and time-consuming court proceedings. Mediation can be a successful means of dispute resolution with around 75%-80% of cases reaching a binding settlement. At Anthony Collins Solicitors we recommend mediation as a cost-efficient alternative to court proceedings.
Our dispute-resolution team has extensive knowledge and experience in supporting social enterprises, co-operatives, mutuals, community-led enterprises, public sector spin-outs, tenant management organisations and values-driven businesses through the mediation process.
We understand the damage that can be caused by internal and external disputes and work to resolve disputes quickly and with minimum damage to your organisation's reputation. We will work in partnership with you to devise solutions in seemingly impossible situations.
