Mediation is a process whereby an independent, neutral Mediator(s) assists the parties to come to agreement through a collaborative process. The Mediator’s role is non-judgemental and non-directive. The Mediator is neither judge nor arbitrator and does not adjudicate or give decisions on the rights or wrongs of the actions of the parties. The Mediator supports the parties in identifying their issues and needs and in exploring how those needs can be addressed and how they might come to agreement. (MII Definition of Mediation). .

Often, and regrettably in business, receiving payments from customers can be a difficult process. There are conflicts which arise in these situations and repeatedly the reasons for non payment do not become clear. There is an obvious legal resolution, however, what we offer is an alternative exploration of the issues causing the outstanding payments and allow the parties to control the outcome. We facilitate an agreement which aims to resolve the issues and maintain the business relationship in the B2B and B2C environment. Read more on commercial mediation.
