SHAW Mediation Australia is national mediation firm. Our services are offered Australia-wide by practitioners in each State around the country. We offer voluntary mediation opportunities to everyone for all types of disputes anywhere, anytime for fixed scaled fees.

Our mediators are nationally accredited and have a legal background. SHAW Mediation Australia Mediators are qualified in mediation and law and all comply with ongoing professional development and are committed to the ethos and guidelines of the Mediation Standards of the Mediation Standards Board. All mediators are accredited by a Recognised Mediators Accreditation Body. This means that SHAW Mediators have the emotional intelligence, training and skills to facilitate productive mediations. Our mediators are patient, kind and passionate about helping you to achieve your desired outcome. We take time to understand your concerns and can succinctly articulate and summarise your perspective and concerns. We remain independent throughout and do everything to make sure you feel safe and supported at all times.

We are there in the mediation with you to level the playing field, balance any power imbalance and ensure respectful behaviour at all times by everyone. SHAW Mediators guide and facilitate the mediation process. Our mediators are future focused and non-judgemental. As an independent third-party, SHAW Mediators facilitate discussion, brainstorming of options and the thorough exploration of your concerns. SHAW mediators are insightful into relationships and the potential barriers to your settlement. We are confident to ask the difficult questions and drill down into the real issues and reality test options with you. However, you are always in control. You decide how you want your mediation to end. The outcomes are decided by you and can then be legally formalised by your lawyer so that they are enforceable. We believe that mediation is the viable alternative dispute resolution because it is cost-effective, quicker, private and convenient and offers the opportunity for you to decide on creative and lasting agreements. We can help you to resolve all kinds of disputes - no matter whether the dispute is personal or commercial, and across all ages, genders and industries.
