Based on one of their recent disputed land cases, four accredited mediators from Lamport Bassitt solicitors presented a mock mediation to give a flavour of the process and to demonstrate how well it can work, for everyone involved. This event was organised by The Southampton Property Association for their members.
Neil Stewart, a partner at Lamport Bassitt said: “Our presentation provided an opportunity to develop an understanding of when you should consider this form of dispute resolution and what it can do for you and your clients”.
Richard Nevines of Keygrove Chartered Surveyors chaired the event for SPA and commented: “A simulated exchange based on real events is an excellent format for giving practical guidance and training. We have used it for other topics and members will have an opportunity to see similar events in 2014”.
