More about commercial mediation

The Swiss Chamber of Commercial Mediation (SCCM) promotes and supports the practice of mediation. Our vision is a world in which business conflicts are resolved through mediation in a collaborative, creative and mutually beneficial manner. We provide a platform for competent, professional and ethical commercial mediation.

We are an association of people who are interested in commercial mediation. Accordingly, our members, who offer mediations in over 10 different languages, have a wide range of backgrounds and experience in business matters.

SCCM accredited mediators help businesses and individuals avoid disputes and resolve them quickly, cost-efficiently and independently. They understand the needs and concerns of parties involved in business conflicts, be they companies, entrepreneurs, or their employees, in internal or external disputes.

Company Succession

The path to suitable company succession is a major challenge in practice. Once a solution has been found, the involved parties breathe a sigh of relief. However, in most cases, too little attention is paid to the actual process of handing over the business. Mediation proceedings are best to address the uniqueness and complexity of disputes that arise in implementing a company succession plan.
