Medical Practice Disputes

Typical challenges:

  • There is no formal Practice Agreement that covers the area of dispute and working relationships are breaking down
  • Positions are entrenched and show no signs of amicable settlement and continuity of the practice is in question – an outcome that no one really wants
  • The issue is centred on an unfair balance of workload and remuneration, perhaps involving a part-time partner
  • There may be a dispute over the ownership of assets
  • Reaching agreement with a retiring partner may have foundered.


A mediated conversation will cut through communication barriers and help draw the parties back together to hold a meaningful business-based dialogue to focus on:

  • Establishing clarity of underlying issues and interests behind the dispute
  • Preventing relationships being permanently damaged
  • Bringing dialogue to a head and finding fair settlement.


Other areas where mediation can help

  • A dispute over breach of supplier contract
