Commercial Mediation

For a business, unresolved disputes can mean faltering performance, disillusioned staff, wasted ‘man hours’ and an inability to move forward.   Mediation can be a quicker, less costly, and confidential way of resolving disputes by agreement so that you can get back to doing business and developing your commercial relationships.

Disputes of all kinds involve ever-increasing worry, expense and time.  They often result in irreparable damage to important relationships, having a lasting effect on a business and it’s people. Commercial disputes can arise from broken contracts, claims brought against the business, or claims brought by the business against individuals or other companies.

In commerce, court proceedings are seen by most as a last resort; there usually a preference to find a fair settlement, at minimal cost to both sides in terms of both time and money, enabling both sides to move forward and resume focus on their business and any ongoing business relationships that need to be preserved.

We can offer a choice of experienced mediators with a high success rate.  Our mediators and dedicated support team provide a courteous and efficient service to assist in the setting up the mediation, including distribution of papers, agreeing arrangements and providing mediation premises and refreshments.

  • “A first choice for truly contentious Litigation in Automotive and Asset Finance and Leasing. His pure skill in tricky work wins through time and again and adds real value compared with the so called 'top tier' litigators. Truly capable, amenable and commercially minded business partners, the 'master chessmen' of their specialty.”

    Paul Maxted, previously the In house Legal Adviser and Company Secretary nearly 20 years, all Financial Services related companies in UK for Daimler, Mercedes-Benz

  • “I have had the pleasure of working with several members of the team at Laceys regularly over a period of years. I found Rob Kelly in particular, who worked on a successful litigation case for me over a period of several years to be outstanding in all aspects of the work he undertook, and the manner in which he did it. I now consider him a friend. I would not - and have not - hesitated to recommend Laceys to my family and friends, and continue to use them for all legal matters.”

    Dan Collins

  • “ I just wanted to thank you for your great work on the professional negligence case and other cases you have represented Indian Ocean and Tiien through the last few years.”

    Mehdi Vahdati, Director and Proprietor - Indian Ocean (Bournemouth) Limited

  • “I've worked with a fair few lawyers over the years and Rob Kelly is the most on the ball and efficient lawyers I've ever come across. I'm looking forward to working together for many years to come.”

    Roger Woodall, CEO - Diamond Sporting Group

Rob specialises in dispute resolution through litigation, arbitration and mediation, with particular emphasis on contractual disputes, insurance and claims involving allegations of professional negligence (which he has prosecuted on behalf of commercial and private clients and defended on behalf of their insurers, re-insurers and Lloyd’s syndicates). He is regularly instructed in connection with substantial disputes involving contractual, professional negligence and contentious probate issues.

Rob’s style is a mix of listening, asking (tough) questions, diplomacy and reality testing. He’s interested, flexible, and pragmatic. He offers a common sense, realistic approach to assist his clients in searching for solutions to their disputes and brings straight talking and integrity to his work.
