Embracing Mediation will help grow your Legal Practice – Lessons from America
Experience in North America has shown that lawyers who promote Mediation in appropriate cases build greater empathy with their clients, retain them more easily, are seen to be concerned with minimising their client’s expenditure, and thereby are paid promptly and in full.
They also enjoy the added benefit of good publicity among the clients’ acquaintances and friends leading to a potentially larger client base.
Mediation helps solve workplace bullying
Finland has twice as many cases of workplace bullying as other European countries, a dissertation research paper presented by the University of Lapland claims. More emphasis is being placed on promoting mediation to reduce the level of harassment and bullying at work.
No similar study has been carried out in Ireland as yet, however the majority of workplace cases that we deal with at Mediate Ireland involves some element of bullying.
