Until further notice TIERNAN MEDIATION will be conducting VIRTUAL MEDIATIONS using ZOOM
During this difficult period of social isolation and remote working TIERNAN MEDIATION is conducting mediations via ZOOM.
The feedback has been overwhelmingly positive.
The Plaintiff participates in the mediation as if it was a face to face mediation,
The Plaintiff is placed in a breakout room and not exposed to the Defendant,
After the Joint Session the parties are placed in Breakout Rooms,
In the Breakout Rooms the participants can confer privately and confidentially,
The parties in Breakout Rooms can ask for the Mediator at any time by clicking the “Ask for Help” Button,
The parties can use the “Share Documents” function to share documents, photos and videos,
The parties can also draft, settle and virtually sign, documents such as Terms of Settlement,
The ZOOM connection is secure, private and confidential and ZOOM has continued to implement security improvements,
After commencement my ZOOM meetings are “closed” by me,
I do not allow the recording of either the session or the chats undertaken in the meeting
