Commerical Mediation

Resolving your dispute

What is involved?

No one wants to be in a commercial dispute – they are both time-consuming and costly. Increasingly, mediation is the preferred way to resolve commercial disputes rapidly and effectively, without the need to go to court.

We understand that it takes different skills to prepare for mediation than it does to prepare for trial. We ensure that we always agree with you the best settlement strategy before the mediation.

Mediation is appropriate across the full range of commercial disputes from contractual and negligence claims to shareholder disputes and inheritance claims.

The team are active members of the Association of Midlands Mediators (AMM). Mark Keeley is a long standing member of the Association of Contentious Trust and Probate specialists and now sits on their organising committee, and is also the Secretary of the AMM.

"Freeths’ work advising on and responding to ACV nominations has been excellent. They have achieved some great results for us and I would certainly recommend their services to any property or pub owners who have received an ACV nomination or had a property ACV listed."

David Nathan

Director - WH Brakspear & Sons Ltd

"We needed a professional approach from an experienced practice to defend us against an application to make our pub into an Asset of Community Value. We spoke to several friends in the same line of business and they recommended Freeths. Their approach was very efficient, taking into account all of our points as well as adding several of their own that we would not have thought of. We won our case. I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone requiring help in this area."
