Arbitration / mediation

As one of the impact the “corona era” has, the courts are less accessible and both private law and employment law cases are drastically delayed. Another good reason to turn to quick alternatives such as mediation and arbitration.

Our mediators Marion Hagenaars, Bob Cordemeyer and Hanneke Slager combine their long and extensive experience and expertise in the field of IT disputes and employment law disputes with their skills to help parties find a quick solution for their dispute. Mediation results in a lasting solution that is supported by both parties. A judgment may resolve a legal issue but it doesn’t very often offer a lasting solution for a problem.

Also where debts must be collected from parties who have ended up with payment problems, the relatively quick mediation proceedings are often to be preferred to waiting for a judgment with an uncertain outcome. And do you know that you can also become entitled to enforce the performance of a settlement agreement, just as if it were the enforcement of a court decision?

We can organise mediation both online and at our offices, where we provide of enough space to observe the 1.5 metre social distancing and which we have adjusted to guidelines laid down by the RIVM (National Institute for Public Health and the Environment).

You can also engage the C&S team to support you as attorneys-at-law in an arbitration case. We have a great deal of experience in supporting clients in arbitration proceedings. Bob Cordemeyer and Hanneke Slager both act as arbitrators as well. Even if you haven’t agreed on arbitration with the other party yet, you can still do so. We recommend that you submit a case for arbitration at an arbitration institute. The SGOA (, the Foundation for the Settlement of Automation Disputes, is perfectly suited for IT disputes.
