Mediation is an effective way of resolving disputes without the need to go to court. It involves an independent third party - a mediator - who helps both sides come to an agreement. Mediation is a flexible process that can be used to settle disputes in a whole range of situations. Insolvency disputes can easily escalate to wholly endemic proportions and mediation is a great tool which can allow these disputes to be resolved quickly.
As a practising Insolvency Practitioner with over twenty years experience and a CEDR accredited mediator, Jeremy has first hand knowledge of the risks and potential financial costs associated with litigation and has himself dealt with many disputes between directors and creditors.
The Court process, as an entity can be fraught with danger and mediation lends itself very well to insolvency disputes.
Insolvency by its very nature brings disputes. Jeremy can advise on all insolvency related cases, many of which could and do progress to Court, even if they are difficult to prove, these could be:
- Wrongful trading claims
- Misfeasance claims
- Transactions at under value
- Directors' claims
- Bankruptcy claims by a trustee
- Claims between business partners
Jeremy will approach all aspects of mediation with a pragmatic and commercial mindset to act as a neutral intermediary between parties. It is certainly not a case of deciding who is right and who is wrong and no intention to have a “win-lose” outcome. There's no taking of sides, instead there's assistance to reach an agreement.
