Middlegrounds (the Clinic) was established in 2016 with solid roots in dispute resolution and diplomacy, the support of an enlisted panel and the vision to domesticate the practice of commercial mediation in Australia. It offers reliable and effective solutions in lieu of litigation.
Middlegrounds is the first of its kind to provide tailored dispute resolution options designed to conserve and even create value for clients.
Litigation has its downsides: it's expensive, it takes time, it produces more work, things can get messy and worst of all, it can spoil value. Meanwhile, parties that engage in the mediation process stand to avoid the expense of litigation costs, delays in reaching a resolution, revenue loss and reputational damage.
