R3 Resolutions provides expert mediation and facilitation services, both online and in person.
Established by Julie Somerville, a lawyer with over 25 years’ experience resolving civil claims, in particular professional indemnity, medical negligence, public liability, intentional torts and institutional abuse claims.
As a mediator, Julie’s ability to facilitate communications between parties has proved invaluable in a wide range of disputes.
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 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.
Increasingly, the Courts are requiring parties to arrange experts with a specialised knowledge on an issue to confer, and produce, a joint report that identifies their areas of agreement and narrows the issues in dispute. Done well, the joint report assists the just, quick and effective disposal of proceedings and reduce the need for experts to attend Court to give evidence. Done poorly, they can be a waste of time and money.
