Our Projects Recovery Service

Our conciliators assist Parties to independently develop a list of objectives which they desire to achieve from negotiations to restart a project impacted by coronavirus.

We move between the Parties building an atmosphere of trust and seeking movement on the Parties' objectives.

Conciliation is most useful where the Parties are unable to engage constructively, for example, where the impact of coronavirus has created tensions between the performance and cost parameters of a contract.

Finding common ground when the Parties can’t (or won’t) talk to one another is not an easy thing to do alone.  We can provide the help you need.  Our conciliators are impartial, independent, professionally qualified and experienced.  We can assist you to identify the disputed issues, develop options, consider the alternatives and reach agreement.

Benefits of our Concilitation Services

  1. Airing of the issues with an expert in the field, development of options and clearing of road-blocks to negotiation.
  2. Rapid response leading to a faster resolution of the dispute whilst avoiding the delays traditionally associated with court procedures.
  3. Control of the dispute resolution process remains in the hands of the parties.
  4. Conciliation is highly cathartic and allows people involved at the project level to feel they have been heard, something frequently not achieved in other forums.
  5. Emphasis is placed on opening up channels of communication by reducing adversarial attitudes that prevent senior managers from working together to resolve business problems.
  6. Conciliation saves on costs when compared to litigation and arbitration and is generally no more expensive than mediation.
