about R3

Established by Julie Somerville, a lawyer with over 25 years’ experience resolving common law claims, in particular professional indemnity, medical negligence, public liability and institutional abuse claims.  R3 Resolutions creates the right environment for those claims to be resolved:

quicker and cheaper than litigation;

in a way that addresses the real needs of the parties; and

by providing a way forward for parties to start rebuilding the future they desire.

mediation

Mediation is a voluntary, confidential process where parties work with a neutral and impartial mediator to resolve their dispute. The parties decide how the dispute is resolved, rather than a Court imposing it on them.

R3 Resolutions adopts a facilitative approach to mediation by assisting the parties to have the conversations that they have not previously been able to have, in an open and respectful manner.
