Next Steps

I can be appointed by solicitors or directly by the parties. If you are appointing me directly, you are advised to seek appropriate legal, financial and other specialist advice before proceeding and to liaise with them before signing a Mediation Agreement or a Settlement Agreement on the day. Remember that a facilitative Mediator is a neutral facilitator, not an advisor.
