Welcome to the webpage of the most independent and creative professional union - LEPL Georgian Association of Mediators!

The Law of Georgia on Mediation came into force on 1 January 2020, with this being an unprecedented reform in Georgia lately. The entry into force of the said law has provided us with incredible opportunities thanks to which, we, in fact, must achieve the unreachable, in particular:

• We have been enabled to resolve in court ongoing legal disputes involving us!
• We have been enabled to resolve legal disputes involving us out of court with the help of mediators!
• An agreement we reach shall be subject to mandatory court approval, with this enabling us to render justice!
• These processes are carried out in the shortest possible term and cost much cheaper than any other dispute resolution tool.

LEPL Georgian Association of Mediators is the union of independent professionals!
Mediators help you identify your real interests, visualize the peaceful and prosperous future you shape!
By choosing mediation, you plan your future, try to pursue your best interests, achieve the best possible outcome, and reach the most acceptable agreement.

Mediators are professionals equipped with knowledge and skills to help you feel comfortable and hopeful in situations that may seem tense initially!
Allow us, mediators, to serve you and pursue your interests!
