Regional law firm RDP Law is pleased to announce the launch of its new mediation service, designed to offer  businesses and individuals a more efficient, cost-effective, and amicable approach to resolving disputes. The new service is also ideal for lawyers who are in need of an impartial mediator for their clients.

The Mediation Service, spearheaded by experienced litigation solicitor and mediator Sarah Porter, provides an alternative to traditional litigation, focusing on collaboration and mutual agreement between parties. This service is suitable for all types of disputes, including commercial disputes, employment issues, property conflicts and family law matters.

Key features of the Mediation service:

  • Expert Leadership: Led by Sarah Porter whose legal career spans nearly 20 years, the Mediation Service benefits from her extensive expertise and deep understanding of conflict resolution. Her approach emphasises empathy, active listening and fair negotiation.
  • Cost-Effective Solutions: Under Sarah’s guidance, mediation often leads to significant cost savings compared to traditional court proceedings, providing an affordable yet highly effective option for clients.
  • Quick Resolution: Disputes are generally settled faster due to a more streamlined process and focus on collaboration rather than adversarial proceedings.
  • Confidentiality Assured: All mediation sessions are conducted in a confidential setting, ensuring that discussions and agreements remain private.
  • Impartiality: Offering lawyers a highly skilled and experienced independent mediator for their clients.

Announcing the new service, Sarah Porter, Partner, Head of Dispute Resolution and mediator at RDP Law, said:

“I am thrilled to be spearheading the new service offering at RDP.

“Our mediation service is designed to provide a supportive environment where parties can openly communicate and reach agreements that work for everyone involved.”

James Davies, Director at RDP Law, added:

“Sarah offers a wealth of experience and a stellar reputation in the field of litigation. As a firm we’re delighted to offer a service of this sort, which should be something anyone experiencing a dispute should consider, as a cost effective and pragmatic means to bring that to an end.”

RDP has a long-standing reputation for excellence in legal services, and the addition of the Mediation Service further enhances its commitment to providing comprehensive and innovative solutions for its clients, and for other lawyers in need of an impartial mediator.
