Welcome to Cressida Burnet Mediation
Mediation can offer a confidential, focused and future driven process. If you choose to mediate solicitors tend to be used at particular points in the process to give their clients specific advice. This streamline use of legal advice limits the cost. Mediation often concludes in an agreement that can be a lot more innovative than may have been ordered by the court, but, can still be legally binding.
Mediators are generally cheaper than using solicitors and their hourly rate is divided between the couple.
Lawyers have noticed a discerned shifting of attitudes amongst their clients who are increasingly inclined towards alternative methods of dispute resolution, especially, in relation to family matters.
Cressida is an experienced specialist family mediator and combined with her strong legal background and her experience in the commercial world all these skills are bought into the mediation room and generally result in an agreement being reached by the parties, or at the very least a much clearer picture as to the issues in dispute and how clients can move forward productively.
