Mediation

SMR Legal is renowned for obtaining highly successful outcomes for its clients through mediation and avoiding the unnecessary stress and expense of litigation.

Our team’s overriding philosophy is that mediation is generally the most cost effective and confidential pathway to resolving disputes, whilst enabling the parties to remain in charge of an agreed outcome.

As court proceedings give the power of the ultimate decision to a third party – usually a judge, magistrate or tribunal member – mediation enables the parties to develop solutions that are flexible and suit the needs of those involved. Instead of a winner and loser emerging from a court battle, mediation enables both parties to ‘win’ as they drive the outcome.

SMR Legal also has a nationally accredited mediator, Stephen Merrylees, who is an extremely effectively mediator with wide ranging expertise in:

  • Commercial
  • Property
  • Estate
  • Family law

Please feel free to ask us a question and we will be happy to discuss your needs.
