Mediation is collaborative, confidential and inclusive
Achieve a positive result
Northwest Mediation aims to conclude your dispute within 1 day
Ed has always wanted to help people resolve their issues.
He has a keen sense of justice and fair play balanced with an understanding of commercial interests.
Having seen the ongoing changes to the legal system he has no doubt that the best way for people and businesses to get affordable solutions to every day problems is to talk to each other.
He knows from his own experience of running a company how difficult it can be to see the wood for the trees and how helpful it is to have a neutral party guide parties to an amicable resolution.
At Northwest Mediation each party will be given the chance to explain what it is that they would like to achieve and how they feel the dispute has arisen.
Then we will explore with both parties what the key issues are and help you recognise what might be possible solutions.
The simple act of talking over the problem will often lead to a better understanding of each party's position.
We do not force a solution onto anybody.
Mediation also known as alternative dispute resolution is about reaching an agreement which both parties can accept.
Northwest Mediation will not allow either party to take advantage of the other.
We will help both parties to explain their positions.
Northwest Mediation will help you narrow the issues in your dispute and enable you to reach conclusion.
