Welcome! If you are here, you may be locked into an energy draining conflict with somebody. It maybe you have a dispute brewing with a neighbour or landlord, a business dispute, a partner or spouse, or an employer. Alternative Dispute Resolution can offer you a way of expeditiously and creatively dealing with the challenges which you may be facing.
IbixInsight founder Carrie Pemberton Ford, has over a decade’s experience working with tough, seemingly intractable situations deploying the skills of a trained mediator, coach, and inter-cultural specialist. She has supported numerous ‘presenting adversaries’ into generatively thinking their way together into a place of commonly beneficial solutions, saving a great deal of financial costs, needless psychological pain, and wasted time contending the presenting challenges through the expense of the courtroom, in the process.
Mediation is a completely confidential process offering the following benefits.
- Greater dynamic input for both parties in determining the agreed outcome.
- Complete privacy in the negotiated terms and outcomes.
- Enhanced appreciation and understanding of some of the blocks which may have been preventing the present challenge from achieving agreement.
- Time saving / potential speed of resolution.
- Cost efficiencies.
Dr Carrie Pemberton Ford can be commissioned for Expert Witness Reports, for the UK and for international courts when relevant – with ability, depending on other project delivery timetables, to assist with the occasional rapid turn-round requirement. Please be in touch with our offices for rates, full supporting CV and Expert recommendations.
