Mediation Service

Mediation Service

“A range of people from silks doing Supreme Court cases down to juniors doing the more straightforward stuff. There is nearly always somebody available with the expertise you need.” (Chambers & Partners 2016)

39 Essex Chambers has an unrivalled reputation in advising and representing a wide range of clients in both contentious and non-contentious litigation in the Court of Protection.

The Court of Protection Mediation Group can respond to:

  • The new case management pilot which requires parties to consider Alternative Dispute Resolution before issuing proceedings in health and welfare cases.
  • The increasing delays parties are experiencing in obtaining hearings in all Court of Protection proceedings, given the enormous pressure on the court.
  • The need for public bodies to keep legal costs to a minimum by resolving disputes as cheaply as possible.
  • The importance of rebuilding relationships that need to persist in the future to avoid disputes recurring.

We believe that mediation has many advantages over a Court resolved process, being more flexible, significantly cheaper and quicker.

All members of the Mediation Group are qualified mediators and have relevant experience in Court of Protection matters.

We offer fixed fees which include all pre-mediation communications including assistance with setting the parameters of the mediation with the parties, a one day mediation and drawing up the mediation agreement.
