SPECIALISTS IN DISPUTE RESOLUTION
We have been specialising in resolving business disputes since 2010. We have learned that all disagreements involve people, people in different roles. Whether it's business to business, employment, directors, trustees or customers, they all involve people.
We are often asked: "When is the best time to get Veritas involved in a dispute?" The answer is as soon as it arises. Why? Because you can stop the issue before it becomes a problem.
Disputes are disruptive to all involved. They are bad for a business's reputation, time-consuming and costly. They distract from focusing on the business going forward, and as a result, things go wrong, causing problems and stress.
People want their day in court, but when common sense and commerciality prevail, they come to Veritas for a solution.

FINDING COMMON GROUND
The Veritas way works by bringing all parties together, although not in the same room. It can even be done by telephone if the parties prefer. We work with each individually finding common ground. Once that's achieved, the Veritas way is to focus on developing a consensus that's acceptable to all involved.
Our resolution process is quick, low cost and simple, reaching a successful conclusion in over 90% of cases.
Once the parties are brought together the focus is on reaching an agreement. That's the whole point of getting together. The Veritas view is that all involved are equal.
There's no leader in the dispute. Everyone has equal standing, and nothing will be agreed without the approval of all parties. Confidentiality is also key throughout.
This balanced approach is crucial, with both parties feeling they have contributed to solving their dispute.
CONCLUDED IN A FEW HOURS
The Veritas way saves time, while the costs are much lower than going to court. What's more, it saves all parties time.
Once an agreement is reached, the parties write the settlement agreement themselves there and then, with members of the Veritas team on hand to help if needed.
The whole process is quick and simple, rarely taking more than four hours from start to finish.

OUR MEDIATION VIDEOS
Over the last few weeks we have produced three self-help videos on how to do your own mediation. The first on the right below overs organising the mediation, the middle video covers how to run the mediation and the left-hand video covers the rules for writing the agreement. I hope these are useful. If you need more information get in touch.
