Expert mediation skills are increasingly valued in the legal profession. With the support and guidance of a mediator, parties in dispute identify issues, develop options and consider alternatives before reaching a mutually acceptable outcome. Mediation provides a way for parties to find solutions to their issues, thereby avoiding the cost and stress of litigation.
To differentiate professionals with high levels of mediation expertise, the Mediator Standards Board runs the National Mediator Accreditation System (NMAS). This was established to promote high standards in mediation and to create benchmarks for quality mediation services across Australia.
The combination of knowledge and experience in commercial disputes litigation with high level mediation, interpersonal and communications expertise is a powerful blend of skills. We are proud that one of our lawyers has been approved as a Nationally Accredited Mediator by the Mediator Standards Board.
