BHA Mediation specialise in the primary areas of civil and commercial mediation, and have completed training accredited by the Civil Mediation Council.
This covers a whole plethora of issues which can arise within our working and personal lives. Such disputes include the following:
Civil mediation is concerned with resolving disputes between individuals and an organisation, including debt, tenancy agreements, wills/probate/inheritance, and personal injury claims.
"The Courts Of This Country Should Not Be The Places Where Resolution Of Disputes Begins. They Should Be The Places Where The Disputes End After Alternative Methods Of Resolving Disputes Have Been Considered And Tried."
Still not convinced that mediation is the best way forwards?
Here is a useful summary as to why mediation should be your next (and hopefully final) step to conflict resolution:
Mediation is 100% confidential. What is discussed collectively is not disclosed to the outside world. What is discussed in private sessions is not discussed with the other party, except with express consent to do so.
The agreement to attend mediation must be voluntary, by all parties concerned. The objective must be to look at determining a mutually agreeable resolution where all parties are happy with the outcome.
The role of the mediator is not to serve as a judge, but to work with all parties in coming to a solution. The mediator is impartial, completely neutral and their sole aim is to help you all determine the best resolution.
BHA Mediation have a 100% settlement rate over the last 12 months.
Its clear to see why people are so positive about both mediation and BHA!
“Bill was able to help us find a very positive solution to a series of contract issues where I assumed the only options available were to go to court or take it on the chin. He proved to be very patient and understanding of both sides and helped us reach not only a positive outcome, but also enabled us to continue to do business in the future. Cannot thank him enough for his efforts and would not hesitate to recommend him to others.”
“Thoroughly recommend Bill as a highly competent mediator. He was able to relate to the problem at hand from his own commercial experience, helped us focus on the key issues and come to an amicable conclusion. Will certainly be using his services again in the future if another similar situation arises.”
“Excellent service all round. Quick to gauge a complete understating of the issues at hand, and helped us reach an agreement. I can highly recommend Bill as a mediator.”
“Quick to build a rapport and keep focus on finding a resolution, Bill took what seemed to be an impossible task and helped us reach a settlement. Patient, personable and professional.”
“At BHA the mediator was professional and helpful throughout the process. Bill was clear about next steps and scrupulously fair in calmly assisting with our discussions.
Excellent advice was given in a non-judgemental and impartial way, I thoroughly recommend BHA to any prospective clients.”
“Highly recommended! Proactive, diligent and thoroughly professional. Thanks for your time, understanding and patience. Cannot tell you how much i appreciated reaching the settlement we eventually reached. 5* service!”
“I approached Bill after I was advised about how much it cost taking the legal route and going to court. I was sceptical about how effective mediation would actually be, but definitely proved to be the right way to go! Thanks for all your help!”
“Mr Andrews has mediated for two of our clients, both of which have reached settlements. Albeit not from a legal background, his level of understanding and ability to cut to the heart of the issues was excellent.”
