Finance / Banking / HMRC

The banking and finance sector has come under the spotlight of consumers and regulators in recent years and has attracted a great deal of negative publicity that has led to an increase in disputes between parties.

Legislation and regulation in the banking and finance industry is exceptionally complex, perhaps more so than in any other sector, and because of this, disputes will inevitably arise.

There is a wide range of issues that Global Mediation’s team of industry-specific mediators have experience in, including –

Contract and policy disputes

  • Debt management and recovery
  • Professional and contributory negligence
  • Insurance claims
  • Loans and mortgages

Our aim is to facilitate a neutral, cost-effective and expedient settlement between the parties relating to all types of banking and finance disputes. Confidential mediation is particularly valued in this sector due to the sensitivity of the information being discussed.
