  • Mediatelegal

    Mediatelegal is the only local mediation provider to be accredited by both the Civil Mediation Council and by the Ministry of Justice. Our panel of expert mediators have performed over 2000 mediations between them. Mediation is an alternative way of resolving disputes rather than taking them to court. In recent years the government has increased court fees by as much as 600% while closing large numbers of courts to save costs. The end result is that it is taking more than a year to run a dispute to court. Can your business afford to sustain a dispute for over a year? Would you want it to? Mediation has a national success rate of 89%. It is quicker, cheaper, more flexible and less likely to damage reputations than going to court would be. Mediatelegal is committed to growing the use of mediation locally. We have launched a number of bespoke mediation schemes with local organisations as we aim to make Merseyside stand out for resolving disputes differently.
