A WORD ABOUT SHUTTLE MEDIATION
There are times and situations where it is niether possible nor desirable to have face-to-face meetings. That's where our very successful SHUTTLE service proves invaluable.
We contact all parties individually, and "shuttle" backwards and forwards to reach agreements.
It therefore does not matter that mediating parties are not in the same building, the same town, or even the same country.
In fact we have been successful in our work with clients in Australia, USA, China, and of course all over Europe.
