Family Mediation is now the primary choice for couples when resolving their differences. The benefits of mediation is that its confidential, mediators are impartial, you control the decision making and its voluntary.
It seems that legal disputes are never far from the news. Whether it is a celebrity couple that is divorcing, an employee who is taking legal action against their employer, or two neighbours in a battle over the ownership of a piece of land, our papers are filled with the latest details of court cases. In many cases, people will turn to a solicitor Lancashire to solve their problems when all else has failed.
They may even have tried to talk to the other party about the dispute first, only to find that this approach has not succeeded. Whether it’s a celebrity couple that is divorcing, an employee who is taking legal action against their employer, or two neighbours in a battle over the ownership of a piece of land, our papers are filled with the latest details of court cases.
In many cases, people will turn to a solicitor to solve their problems when all else has failed after having tried and failed to resolve the problem themselves and this costs much more money than the family mediation service.

This means that a solicitor, if they are doing their job correctly, will examine the whole body of law relating to your case.

Disputes between neighbours are becoming more common and cases of ‘neighbour nuisance’ are increasingly being fought out in court. Legal, adversarial, approaches to neighbour disputes invariably lead to longer-term problems. By the stage that the disagreement has reached court, relations have inevitably broken down. It may be that you will have to live next to your neighbours for many years and it is important to maintain good relations with them. Whether the issue involves noise problems, the size of hedges or use of driveways and other areas, mediation is a sensible solution.
The benefits of neighbour mediation are:-
- Maintains good relationships between neighbours in the long run.
- Avoids legal battles being fought out in court with, potentially, publicity in the local press.
- The neighbours can move on from the argument with a written agreement which is of mutual benefit to them.
There are certain problems in the workplace, for example harassment or discrimination, which are so serious that the government advises that they are formally investigated. For other problems, mediation is an ideal solution. Disputes can occur between an employer and employee over issues such as working arrangements, relocation and contractual disagreements. There may also be disputes between employees through ‘personality clashes’, or disagreements over how work should be approached. Legal battles, involving trade unions and employers associations, can be prolonged and become ugly. However, mediation can help to resolve such problems quickly and effectively.
The benefits of workplace mediation are:-
- A productive, motivated, workforce who do not feel that they have to go to the union, or to the courts, to resolve their problems.
- A confidential service which employers can trust.
- The mediation can occur at your convenience, rather than at times specified by a court, or a union representative.
Disputes between business partners can be very destructive to the day to day operation of a company. Contractual issues, disputes over intellectual property and issues over boundaries and rights of way can lead to your profits and valuable time being compromised through legal disputes. Such cases can also produce bad publicity in the press, and through your professional networks. Rather than fight such cases out in a public forum, a mediator can help you to discuss and resolve these problems, arriving at a solution that each party is happy with.
The benefits of commercial mediation are:-
- Maintaining good, long term, commercial relations between you and the other party involved in the dispute.
- Negligible cost to the company.
- A solution that you are happy with, and will lead to business confidence in the future.
