Mediation is a structured form of negotiation in which a trained and independent outsider helps find a mutually satisfactory outcome for parties involved in a dispute. With mediation now firmly established as part of the legal landscape, courts actively encourage and look with favour on parties who are willing to try alternative dispute resolution. The result is that mediation is one of the fastest and most cost effective routes to achieving dispute resolution.

3PB offers qualified and accredited mediators across all levels of seniority. Our mediators are all experts in their chosen fields.  Our team is available to assist as either mediators or conciliators or to act as representatives for parties in mediation.  Having conducted in excess of 500 mediations between them, they assist in resolving disputes that have significant financial implications, some claims being worth over £100m. They also mediate in disputes with few, or no, financial implications but where facilitation is still required for parties to achieve resolution.

Our mediators offer expertise in single party and multi-party disputes, across a range of areas that include construction law, professional negligence, property including probate, employment, education, local authority disputes, sport, debt recovery, contractual and other commercial agreements.

For disputes up to a value of £200,000 we will provide a mediator under our fixed fee mediation scheme, offering parties cost-effective and speedy assistance to resolve their dispute.

All our mediators are available for direct appointment through Chambers.  We also offer mediation accommodation free of charge (subject to availability) in our six national centres.
