Civil and commercial mediation

Blake Morgan's mediators provide cost effective mediation of civil and commercial disputes, as well as training in mediation and conflict resolution, across the UK and abroad. 

Main areas of practice

All our trained mediators are experienced litigators. Between them our mediators have many years' experience of mediation in most types of dispute, often between several parties, involving for example:

Mediation is probably the only dispute resolution process where the parties between them control the outcome.  The mediator can't impose a solution and does not decide which of the parties is right or wrong. The mediator's role is to impartially facilitate settlement of the dispute.

Our mediators are experienced at exploring the issues, facilitating negotiations and encouraging the parties in dispute to develop commercially sensible options.


Typically our mediators are instructed by businesses looking for cost effective resolution of their disputes on commercially sensible terms. However our mediators are also appointed by local government and central government agencies. Many disputes mediated involve private individuals as parties in civil or commercial disputes.

What will mediation cost?

Parties embarking on mediation have the certainty of fixed costs

Other expertise

Our senior mediators also offer Early Neutral Evaluation of disputes. At the end of the Early Neutral Evaluation, the evaluator(s) will produce a non-binding, non-enforceable written decision in the dispute.  Some very large disputes have been settled through ENE, without recourse to the Courts. The ENE process is tailored to the dispute.

Please contact one of our team for further information and likely costs.
