A mediator can assist you to navigate the dispute and reach an agreement.
Mediation is a voluntary, confidential process where the parties are encouraged by a mediator to understand each other’s perspectives, talk through the issues, identify their mutual interests, develop realistic options, and find a solution that the parties can agree to.
- Consensual – reach an agreement that works for you
- Cost effective
Fixed price mediation is available, with pricing starting at $4000 for a half-day mediation. When you get in touch with our team, we can provide you with a quote based on your requirements.

The mediator will meet with you individually before the mediation to:
