Fast-track Mediation

Your cost-effective and efficient mediation service for resolving disputes.

Why Mediate?

ADC Fast-Track mediation is a cost-effective and efficient mediation service for resolving disputes. Do you have a conflict to resolve now, and do you want a fast, easy, less expensive way to resolve it? The Australian Disputes Centre (ADC) can help you.

As disputes are often protracted and expensive to resolve, Fast-Track mediation focuses on a quick, inexpensive and confidential way to resolve issues in the workplace, at your sports club or with clients and service providers. It provides a private way to identify a mutually beneficial resolution.

Mediation is a flexible and effective process to use at any stage of a dispute, including during an existing Internal Dispute Resolution process.

Why ADC?

Once decided on a Fast-Track mediation, ADC will appoint a professional mediator to assist in the mediation process. Our nationwide panel of mediators are all highly skilled and independent specialists.

Importantly, our mediators work to manage the mediation as an impartial third party. They do not make any decision during the process. Instead, they assist in exploring options that are mutually beneficial for the parties.

Most importantly, ADC offers an economic, flat cost for Fast-Track customers. We appoint an experienced mediator to have preliminary meetings with each of the parties and conduct a half-day joint mediation session. If needed, extending the mediation for a standard hourly fee is optional.

Who benefits?

ADC’s Fast-Track mediation works in many sectors – including Sports, Local Government, Workplace, and Financial Service. Click the images below to explore more details.
