Mediation is an effective method of alternative dispute resolution (ADR). It is an informal, private, non-binding and voluntary process whereby disputes, between parties are resolved by a third party neutral commercial mediator who will assist the parties to reach an agreement.

Mediation is used in the resolution of a wide range of construction and commercial disputes.  The use of mediation and ADR to resolve disputes has increased significantly over the years and is encouraged by the courts. The Technology and Construction Court (TCC), The Commercial Court and the Chancery Division actively encourage the use of Alternative Dispute Resolution, which includes mediation and ADR for the resolution of construction and commercial disputes.
