For estates with disputes over property, valuations, negligence, management  or partnership issues, compulsory purchase matters, employee grievances, supplier contract breach or divorce settlements.

Bell Ingram and Catalyst Mediation now offer you modern and proven alternatives to litigation - facilitative or directive mediation. Mediation will normally provide a quicker, less expensive and ultimately more satisfying experience than the unpredictable decision of a court.


Everyone will gain a better understanding of what happened, why and the solutions that will resolve the present and prevent a repeat in the future.


The great majority (75%+) of mediations result in agreements because those involved can see issues more clearly and so create more positive, binding outcomes which they want to succeed – rather than ones which are imposed by a third party.


A choice of styles. 

In a facilitative mediation, the mediator develops a discussion between you and any experts you choose to bring. They guide the debate in positive roads, testing the validity of possible outcomes with you to ensure they are practicable and will work. They will not advise or suggest possible outcomes. In a directive mediation, you can combine the skills of a mediator with an expert from the Panel – and if you wish them to they will advise you on possible outcomes from positions you may be taking or actions you may be considering. However you do not have to be bound by their advice – you can ignore it if you so choose.
