Civil & Community Mediation
WHY USE BARCLAY DEVERE FOR CIVIL MEDIATION?
When considering civil mediation as a more appropriate way of attempting to reach a settlement in a dispute, you need to be certain that the mediator that you appoint will act in a thoroughly professional manner, with integrity and understanding. Equally, you will need to know you have a guarantee that anything you discuss with the appointed mediator will be kept strictly confidential.
At Barclay DeVere we have an exceptional team of professional mediators who are trained to the exacting standards the industry demands. The majority of our team of commercial, civil and community mediators are also legally trained and many continue to practise as solicitors or barristers specialising in areas such as civil or commercial law.

They are fully committed to providing clients with an exceptional level of service and will make every effort to ensure that the mediation process is conducted as straightforwardly as possible. Our mediators all have several years legal and/or mediation experience in the field of civil or commercial law and are highly competent in their fields of expertise.
