Mediation is a method of resolving conflicts between two or more parties that, in the presence of a neutral and independent third party, enables a collaborative, tailored, and pragmatic solution suited to the specifics of the situation. Mediation often allows parties to avoid taking their dispute to court.

Our mediation services cover both interpersonal conflicts within families, workplace disputes, and neighbourly disagreements, as well as commercial disputes.

Through the implementation of the mediation process, we offer you a neutral, independent, and confidential negotiation space, allowing for the amicable, swift, and cost-effective resolution of disputes between private individuals and/or legal entities.

The agreement reached in mediation can, at the request of the parties, be formalised in an agreement drafted by our mediator-lawyer, who has extensive experience in court procedures.

Our firm offers its resources and extensive expertise by providing conferences in numerous legal fields, particularly in business and labour law, for nationally and internationally active companies, and through the publication of various articles and opinions in specialized legal journals.
