"I was sceptical it could be done - but the mediator pulled it off, and we signed an agreement and put an end to years of fighting."
Civil and Commercial Mediation in Bristol Is: Confidential, Voluntary, and Gives YOU Control Over The Outcomes You Agree, Because…
Mediation is… Confidential
Confidentiality is the cornerstone of our mediation service. It is the concept that underpins the whole process. The fact that all discussions are confidential gives everyone involved in the process complete confidence to be open, and honest, and it allows the mediator to explore with each of the parties the fundamentals of their motivations and desires, emotionally and financially.
Confidentiality in mediation is essential to getting to the nub of problems that would never see the light of day in a court setting and in getting to solutions that accommodate and recognise these needs, which standard litigation could never begin to address. 90% of our Bristol mediations will find a settlement, but even in the unlikely event that no agreement emerges, everything said in a mediation is “without prejudice” – so it can never be repeated, especially in court.
Mediation is… Voluntary
Since mediation in Bristol is a voluntary process it is something that both parties must undertake willingly. In fact, there are cost implications if one doesn’t engage with it constructively because courts view mediation so positively for the benefits it brings. So, while mediation isn’t mandatory, it is strongly encouraged and very much the best thing anybody involved in litigation can do.
It is true that most parties will see the advantage that mediation offers, and when they do they will come to it in this voluntary and progressive fashion. The day of mediation allows the antagonism of litigation to be put aside and for the parties to work through areas of their own commercial or emotional self-interest. This is what produces such overwhelmingly positive outcomes, and why there’s so much to gain and so very little to lose for parties when they agree to mediation in bristol.
Mediation gives… Control
When parties to the mediation are able to put the dry structure of the litigation process aside for the day, then novel and innovative solutions can emerge that defy the confines of the court process.
The confidentiality of the Bristol mediation process allows anything to be floated to put together a deal and ideas can be proposed and abandoned without any worry that such a notion might be prejudicial to the case, or used against one in a court setting.
This is when the parties themselves, rather than their lawyers can come to the fore and solutions that get to the heart of their dispute – and the issues and emotions that underlie it, can be addressed and satisfied so that the parties themselves structure their own settlement – and it is one they have fashioned and have been in control of, not something inflexible, imposed by a court.

Commercial Mediation in Bristol Is A Real Growth Market - For Good Reason - Because It Works!
Commercial Mediation in Bristol Goes From Strength To Strength - Take Advantage. Find Our More...
In the UK, the Centre for Effective Dispute Resolution (CEDR) do a bi-annual audit of the “state of mediation”, and this is the most considered study available for mediation in the country.
The most recent CEDR mediation audit shows that over 12,000 commercial mediations (in other works higher value cases that exclude small claims) were undertaken in their last survey. This is a huge increase of over 20% on the previous survey of 2016.
The study demonstrates that in the last audited year nearly £12 billion-worth of litigation claims were successfully mediated.
Just as impressively, the survey states that this mediation has saved those businesses over £3 billion in legal fees and wasted time!
The CEDR audit was conducted from a survey of 336 experienced practising mediators alongside the lawyers and barristers who used them for their mediations to give an extra perspective from a “client” point of view. The survey was also conducted in collaboration and with the endorsement of the Civil Mediation Council and in partnership with the International Institute of Conflict Prevention and Resolution adding an international mediation perspective.
The survey revealed some very interesting things, such as:
- That mediation is on the rise and growing in popularity with some really remarkable growth statistics. For example, organised mediation supported by the NHS, by County Court mediation pilots and by the Court of Appeal has shown growth of more than 45% in the past 2 years. Such organised mediation now accounts for around 4,500 cases per annum.
- However, even in the case of ad hoc referrals from the public or by solicitors resulting in individual mediation cases, the use of mediation has still shown double figure growth.
- The survey shows an overall growth rate up by more than 20%.
- That mediation continues to enjoy an outstanding success rate. The aggregate settlement rate reported is 89%. At GetMediation we can report a success rate of over 90% which corroborates this overall picture. Settlement rates were reported by the mediators in the survey but validated by the separate survey taken from solicitors and barristers.
- The lawyers themselves stated that in their opinion over 83% of mediators performed well or very well.
- Mediation fees showed a significant drop of 19.34% to an average of £3,627 from over £4,500 in 2016. This goes to show that as well as maintaining, or increasing, the rate of successful settlements, mediation is proving itself to be even more cost effective for participants.
Graham Massie, Director of CEDR, author of the Audit Report, gave an overview of the great success mediation is having in the UK legal landscape:
“One definition of Disruptive Innovation is: ‘An innovation that creates a new market and value network and eventually disrupts an existing market and value network, displacing established market-leading firms, products, and alliances‘. As the results of this Audit demonstrate, mediation qualifies under virtually every aspect of the definition – the only point it hasn’t hit is ’displacing established market-leading firms‘ but that is because it has over-achieved by changing law firms and lawyers’ behaviours and attitudes.”
So, it is official: Mediation Goes From Strength To Strength!
