A local legal expert has become one of only a handful of specialised mediators in the region helping prevent costly court battles

Mukesh Basra, of QualitySolicitors Mander Cruickshank, who has almost 30 years legal experience, is one of only a handful of solicitors in the Midlands recognised by dispute resolution body The Academy of Experts to oversee finding peaceful resolutions for civil and commercial disputes.

Mr Basra, who spends time between the firm’s two branches in Coalville and Hinckley, said mediation was now seen as a more effective way of dealing with disputes rather than expensive court proceedings .

“It is very effective in neighbour disputes, problems with contracts, inheritance claims and in many other areas,” he said.

“What I do is facilitate a meeting between the parties to identify the issues and for the parties to reach an amicable settlement of their dispute which they can live with.”

“It saves expensive court costs, leads to quicker results and also helps save the stress and anxiety that arises in such situations,” he added.

“Litigation is now being seen as much more of a last resort and methods of Alternative Dispute Resolution such as mediation is being seen as the way forward.”

As well as helping QualitySolicitors Mander Cruickshank clients Mr Basra is also available in his highly specialised role as an accredited civil and commercial mediator for other legal firms and organistaionsin the region.
