This answer was rated:

Hi, I have just received a claim against me and I would like to enter mediation but the price being quoted is a ridiculous £3,000. Do you have any good fair price mediation services you could recommend. The claim against me is commercial and to the value of £31k. Thank you. Mike

Hello, my name is Jim and I am a qualified lawyer happy to help you today.

You can try these : https://civilmediation.org or https://mediate.co.uk/civil-commercial

Bear in mind mediation is entirely optional although the courts encourage it if it helps avoid court proceedings. It takes both parties to agree to mediation - you should share the fee with the other side as a result.

I hope this helps - if you can please accept the answer and give me a 5 star rating (the top right of your screen & then click “submit”), I can answer follow up Q&A's at no extra charge and I will be credited for helping you today.

Many thanks,

Jim
