About SHAW workplace


SHAW Workplace is the Workplace Sub-brand of SHAW DR, a national dispute resolution firm offering Mediation, Arbitration and Family Dispute Resolution services Australia-wide. We offer voluntary dispute resolution opportunities to everyone for all types of disputes anywhere, anytime for fixed scaled fees.

Our Mediation practitioners are nationally accredited.  They are all university qualified, with most being experienced Lawyers or Psychologists and are accredited mediators or arbitration experts in their jurisdiction.  Our Investigators are also minimum  Bachelor degree qualified and are licensed in their relevant State, All practitioners comply with ongoing professional development and are committed to the ethos and guidelines of the Dispute Resolution Standards of the Mediation Standards Board. All practitioners are accredited by a Recognised Mediators Accreditation Body. This means that SHAW DR practitioners have the emotional intelligence, training and skills to facilitate productive dispute resolution sessions. Our practitioners are patient, kind and passionate about helping you to achieve your desired outcome. We take time to understand your concerns and can succinctly articulate and summarise your perspective and concerns. We remain independent throughout and do everything to make sure you feel safe and supported at all times.

At SHAW, our job as workplace resolution practitioners is:

  • to guide and facilitate the dispute resolution process;
  • to facilitate discussion, brainstorming of options and the thorough exploration of your concerns;
  • to level the playing field, remove any power imbalance and ensure respectful behaviour at all times by everyone;
  • to be future focused and non-judgemental;
  • to remain as an independent third-party;
  • to bring insight into the potential barriers to your settlement.

We are confident to ask the difficult questions and drill down into the real issues and reality test options with you. However, you are always in control.  You decide how you want your workplace resolution session to end. The outcomes are decided by you and can then be legally formalised by your lawyer so that they are enforceable.

We believe that alternative dispute resolution is a viable alternative to courts and lawyers, because it is cost-effective, quicker, private & convenient and offers the opportunity for you to decide on creative and lasting agreements.

We can help you to resolve all kinds of disputes – no matter whether the dispute is personal or commercial, and across all ages, genders and industries.

Let’s Resolve.

Thank you to Ali and your team for your prompt actions in organising the mediation. I have received amazing feedback from those involved about Ali’s calming but methodical approach to ensuring that everyone had the opportunity to be heard, raise their concerns and come up with solutions.  I am confident that with Ali’s help we have put in place a plan for future success. Thanks again for helping us work through the issues and get this great outcome for all.
