For any case, a ONE~resolve mediator will give close attention to the particular nature of the dispute and the parties. We don’t assume that any standard format should apply but will suggest a process that we think will be most helpful for the circumstances. The depth and variety of our mediators’ background experience helps us shape an approach that will promote an early and economical resolution.
We believe that when a dispute situation arises, mediation should be considered at the very outset. The forthcoming Mediation Bill for Ireland is expected to enshrine this principle in the law. It involves parties being willing to engage with each other before pursuing a different channel. This can take courage but also bring remarkable results when it happens under skilful guidance.
Some disputes require legal intervention, others don’t. Where lawyers are needed the degree of their involvement can vary. Their role may be to give valuable preliminary advice before parties go into mediation, or they can contribute to the mediation at a later stage. In other instances it will be appropriate that lawyers are engaged from the outset and remain involved throughout the process.
In many, perhaps most, situations, the mediator is chosen by lawyers on each side.
A party may also like the option, however, of proposing to the other party that they review the names on our website with a view to agreeing on a choice of mediator. Either party may also contact any of our mediators by phone for a preliminary discussion if that will assist them in going forward.
Where lawyers are retained for a case, success in mediation depends on those representing both parties being familiar with the process. Where parties have not already contacted a legal adviser, we can provide a list of experienced lawyers who favour its use.
"The courts of this country should not be the places where resolution of disputes begins. They should be the places where the disputes end after alternative methods of resolving disputes have been considered and tried."
Justice Sandra Day O’Connor (US Supreme Court)
