Keep control of the process

You choose the mediator, the venue and the timing. You decide whether you want to settle or not, no one imposes a decision on you.

Get rid of conflicts without going to court

Mediation is informal, no one is on trial and everybody gets to say what they want to say.

Do it all online

Save travel and overcome time differences by mediating from your own home or office. 

Reboot stalled negotiations

An expert mediator can identify the obstacles and help you clear them.

Mediation is quick, flexible and good value
