Who We Are

We are a  non-profit, non-governmental organization, incorporated in 2004 as the first professional Association for dispute resolution in  Barbados.  Our experience enables us to offer effective methods of resolving disputes out of court and we can assist you in reaching agreements and settlements in less time, and at a lower cost, to what you are likely to experience with litigation. 

Our Focus

While we focus on Conflict Resolution in general, we are best known for and practice Mediation at a higher frequency than other methods of dispute resolution (e.g. arbitration, facilitation, assisted negotiation etc).

What is Mediation?

Mediation is a voluntary, confidential, and without  prejudice process of intervention in a dispute or negotiation by an  impartial third party  who has no decision-making power.  The third party assists disputing  parties in voluntarily reaching their own mutually acceptable settlement  of issues in  dispute by structuring the negotiation, maintaining the channels of  communication, assisting each party in articulating their needs,  identifying the issues, and  assisting the parties in creating alternative ideas to resolve the  dispute.
