Our experienced mediation team can support social enterprises through every step of the mediation process, saving time and money.
Dispute resolution through mediation is a cost-effective and efficient means of reaching workable outcomes and one that is encouraged by judges and the courts in the early stages of dispute resolution. Around 75%-80% of cases using mediation to resolve disputes reach a binding settlement, reducing the cost and time of court proceedings.
At Anthony Collins Solicitors we will support you with devising solutions in seemingly impossible situations. We use the strength and depth of our sector knowledge to guide social enterprises, co-operatives, mutuals, community-led enterprises, public-sector spin-outs, tenant management organisations and values-driven businesses through the mediation process.
We recommend exploring mediation as a means of dispute resolution because as well as saving money, it avoids the disruption of contested court proceedings, as well as potential damage to your organisation’s reputation and distracting your organisation from its key purposes.
