Conflict Resolution Services

Business Mediation has many benefits when it comes to successful conflict resolution. At AMK Law, we’re pleased to now offer this service to provide a gentler way of resolving disputes, helping to restore relationships and to keep businesses moving forward.
Mediation sessions can be conducted in person at our offices in Melbourne (pending Covid-19 requirements) or they can be held conveniently online, via online meeting software (such as Zoom). Therefore, we can provide our conflict resolution services to clients all over Australia.

Why Choose Mediation for Conflict Resolution?

Mediation is a great first step when a dispute arises, before resorting to costly and stressful legal proceedings.

Better, happier outcomes

Mediation aims to find the middle ground where all parties can be satisfied with the end results. Parties have more control over what decisions get made and how, as opposed to leaving it up to a judge or court to decide one way or the other (which may not result in a happy outcome for anyone involved).

Completely confidential

Instigating legal proceedings tends to be a very public process. Resolving disputes via mediation is kept completely confidential, behind closed doors – therefore protecting the reputations of individuals and companies alike. It’s also helpful to know that nothing that gets discussed in a mediation session is placed ‘on record’. Nothing you or anyone else says can be used as future evidence should things progress further at any stage. Giving you the confidence and security to discuss issues openly.

Reduced costs

Legal proceedings are inevitably expensive. The costs of hiring a lawyer and having your case heard before a court, can keep adding up. Mediation can be held much more easily and cheaply, therefore avoiding drawn-out legal and court fees.

Faster conflict resolution

Mediation can be organised and held a lot more quickly, rather than having to wait for a court date. Plus, there’s plenty of evidence to say that an expertly-lead mediation session can produce better outcomes, more quickly by keeping all parties on the same page and working towards a mutually beneficial goal.

Relationship preservation

Taking legal action is a very drastic step and can understandably cause significant upset between the parties involved. Business mediation can help bring estranged parties back together, in a peaceful way – enhancing understanding and encouraging a harmonious decision and working relationship going forward.

What happens if mediation fails?

Mediation in general has a high success rate. However, there’s always a chance that it won’t successfully resolve a dispute.
If a resolution cannot be reached, Matthew can guide you on your next best steps – including providing advice as to whether it may be worthwhile proceeding down further legal avenues.
Rest assured though, that nothing that gets said in your mediation discussions can be used against you in court (with a few exceptions). And mediation is often the best FIRST step to try, before you escalate your matter further.
