A senior solicitor from our Dispute Resolution team talks about mediation is dispute cases.
Stephen Fallon, a senior solicitor in our Dispute Resolution team, explains that many cases can be resolved before reaching court.
In most cases, [disputes] can be resolved before court proceedings are issued, as parties often think, well, realise how much it will cost them, both in terms of legal costs but also management time and just personal stress and angst that they spend in their own time, because once you’ve launched into court proceedings, you are then compelled to comply with certain steps in those proceedings which can be quite time-consuming and, as I say, stressful.
