Hilary Griffin

Welcome to HG Mediate

HG Mediate helps individuals and businesses in the UK and the Channel Islands to resolve their disputes without the cost, anxiety and adverse publicity of a court or tribunal hearing.  Hilary Griffin, an experienced lawyer and former employment judge, offers cost-effective, efficient and confidential mediation services for a broad range of personal and professional disputes.

What is Mediation?

Mediation is a voluntary and confidential process in which a neutral third party (the mediator) enables individuals or businesses who are in dispute to find a mutually acceptable resolution.

  • Mediation is a cost-effective means of finding a solution
  • Mediation is 100% confidential
  • Mediation is entirely voluntary
  • The mediator is independent and impartial
  • Mediation takes place in a neutral environment
  • Mediation removes the stress and unpredictability of court proceedings
  • Mediation puts the parties (rather than the court or tribunal) in control of the outcome

For further information on what happens at a mediation and how it can work for you or your business, please read the information and Guidance Notes on our Mediation page.

Alternatively, please feel free to give us a call on the number at the top of the page or contact us via email using the Contact page
