Tips from Top Mediators

Mark Jackson-Stops writes:

In fact this month the tip, or rather two tips, come from top mediators' senior case manager, Jane Claypole. She says:

"1   Why not ring the changes? You may like the style and good consistent results of your favourite mediator, and view him/her as a safe pair of hands, if not a magician. We can work with you to expand your selection of trusted mediators so you have even more confidence in using the most appropriate one for your case.

2   Do your sums! A low day rate, especially when quoted per party, may look attractive, but is preparation included or charged at an hourly rate? There is little consistency in the way mediations are charged for and it pays big time to get out the calculator."

For balanced advice on mediator selection at an appropriate cost, contact Jane or Joanne, Case Managers on 020 7917 9449.
