Our story

Background

Our story

The Coast Mediation Centre, (CMC) offers mediation, and other alternative dispute resolution services as a neutral administrative agency. Our goal is to enable disputants resolve disputes in a manner which is generally swifter, less costly, more confidential and less formal than litigation. The chronic backlog of cases before the Kenyan courts and high cost of adjudicating disputes prompted the founders of CMC to propose its establishment so as to offer an efficient and reliable solution to the problem.

Our Roster of Neutrals consists of approximately 30 professionally certified dispute resolution experts whose experience, objectivity and impartiality make them exceptionally well qualified to serve in that capacity. Each has been selected to serve on our specific panels, based on their skills and expertise.

Our local, highly experienced case managers are committed to ensuring the prompt and efficient case administration you require, with reasonable filing fees. Hearings may be scheduled at our offices or at any location agreeable to the parties.

As disputes are varied it is important that you know the best path to take in order to resolve your conflict.
