Slider2 WhyChooseImmediate


Based in Belfast, Northern Ireland, the founding members of “Immediate” have promoted the benefits of mediation dispute resolution for both clients and lawyers.  They were at the forefront of developing mediation for the Bar of Northern Ireland. They are both highly qualified in their own particular fields of law where they enjoyed enormous success.  Additionally, they have been amongst the first of their peers to recognise and accept and develop mediation for its obvious benefits.  Immediate is the ideal mechanism for dispute resolution, no matter what the case:


Professionally Qualified Principal Mediators

  • Both Principals have been barristers for over 30 years.
  • Both are professionally trained to a high level in mediation skills.
  • Types of dispute include workplace, commercial, land, professional negligence, debt and marital separation.

Seventy Years Courtroom Experience

  • Our Principal Mediators have 70 years litigation experience between them.
  • We know better than anyone the cost (financial, stress, time) involved in court proceedings.
  • Where court can be avoided, we are here to help.

An Immediate Engagement is a Successful Resolution

  • Immediate offers a “fast response” call out service to “nip disputes in the bud.”
  • Early engagement in mediation increases the likelihood of quick resolution.
  • Quick mediation reduces costs for ALL parties.

 No Hidden Legal Fees

  • Immediate will agree the fee with you in advance.
  • There will be no unexpected “billable hours.”
  • The fees quoted to you will be the total fees you will be asked to pay for the mediator's services. There are no additional booking or administration fees.

 No Stress

  • Mediation enables you to reach a mutually acceptable outcome.
  • The courtroom is an intimidating arena, where control of outcomes is given to the judge.
  • Mediations can take place in the venue of your choice, often a neutral environment.
