Lawyer Achieves Mediation Qualification

Mar 14th, 2016

Experienced lawyer Andrew Fearn has qualified as a civil and commercial mediator.

Andrew, a partner at Langleys Solicitors, has achieved the qualification under the Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) Group Civil and Commercial Mediation Training Programme.

There is an increasing requirement for mediation given the government’s commitment to ADR. For parties involved in disputes, the mediation process is generally faster and cheaper than going through court proceedings.

Andrew has more than 30 years’ experience in private client and agricultural and rural law. He said: “I expect to see a steady increase in the requirement for mediation as parties come to realise that it offers a quicker and less-costly solution to disputes. I can bring my experience to bear in helping parties reach agreement in their disputes through the mediation process.”

Mediation is well established in the USA and on continental Europe while the UK is catching up. Andrew added: “In my view, mediation is an obvious way forward for those in dispute; why wouldn’t you want to resolve your dispute more quickly, at less cost and with reduced stress?”
