VSBC mediation panel
Our mediation panel is made up of mediators with experience in commercial dispute resolution and a passion for helping small business people across Victoria to resolve their disputes quickly, efficiently and at a low cost.
We’re committed to building a diverse panel (metropolitan, regional and rural) that can provide an inclusive and accessible service. This is why we look to appoint mediators who, along with the requirements detailed below, identify as or have experience in providing mediation services to Victorian Aboriginal people, Victorians with a disability, disadvantaged Victorians or clients who have mental health challenges.
