Pam Hatfield Associates Ltd provides you with highly trained family, commercial and workplace mediators from our carefully selected team. Our mediators are all respected for their sound experience and specialist knowledge in their relevant areas of law. Mediation is a non-adversarial approach to conflict resolution. The aim of mediation is to bring parties together on neutral ground to achieve a settlement or agreement which binds the parties. It is a voluntary process and any party can terminate the mediation at any stage. A mediator is an impartial facilitator, agreed jointly by both parties, who attempts to help the parties seek a solution. Unlike arbitration, where the facilitator listens to the arguments of both sides and makes a decision, the role of the mediator is to help facilitate communication. The mediator assist both parties to focus on the issues and attempt to generate solutions which satisfy the parties needs in an effort to resolve the conflict. Mediation is a flexible process conducted confidentially in which an impartial person actively assists parties in working towards a negotiated agreement of a dispute or difference, with the parties in ultimate control of the decision to settle and the terms of resolution.
A typical divorce settlement through the court system can take more than a year to negotiate. Mediation is a way of resolving difficulties through joint meetings with the help of a legally trained, impartial mediator. Family mediation can save you time and money whilst reducing emotional distress. It also allows you to make decisions rather than having them imposed upon you by a court. Any agreement made through family mediation only becomes legally binding after the court has considered and approved the application and granted a Consent Order. If you are seeking an experienced legally trained mediator to help resolve a family dispute, please contact us to arrange a confidential discussion about your case.
Commercial mediation is a practical yet sophisticated process designed to address the real issues and obstacles behind conflict in reaching a commercially viable solution. Our legally trained commercial mediators understand that for many individuals and organisations dispute resolution is a ‘distress purchase'. The cost in terms of business disruption and personal management time to manage conflict is often underestimated. Our commercial mediation services provide an effective yet challenging alternative. The appointment of a professional third party impartial commercial mediator through Pam Hatfield Associates Ltd will provide the structure within which a constructive and positive negotiation process can take place. The decision to settle and terms of agreement rest with the parties themselves, not the mediator and not a judge. We have a good track record to manage many commercial mediation appointments each year making us popular commercial mediators. Over 80% of the cases referred to our commercial mediation services settle on the day or shortly thereafter avoiding the cost, stress and unnecessary delay of progressing to trial. The most appropriate professional commerical mediator will be appointed to your case. This is a private process in which an independent third-party is appointed to facilitate a dispute between two or more parties.
Workplace mediation is primarily concerned with restoring relationships in the workplace, and since the optimum use of human resources is at the heart of business efficiency, it is a productive process to maintain a professional business environment for all employees. Mediation is a voluntary process and is confidential.
