Mediation is an ideal remedy if you wish to reach an amicable settlement and if you are willing to negotiate with the other party. A mediated solution enables you to preserve your relationship with the other party and resolve the issue in a confidential way. Through mediation, parties often get results within a few weeks and the costs are limited to a fraction of the costs in litigation. Ariani specialises in mediating labour, neighbour and business conflicts. Ariani can help restore communication between parties and find a solution that takes into account the interests of both parties. Ariani is an Mfn-registered mediator, which means she meets the quality requirements of the Mediators Federation of the Netherlands.
Ariani graduated with a Master degree in Dutch Law (Civil Law and Business Law) from Leiden University. She started her career in business but eventually found her calling in the legal profession and in mediation:
"My motto is 'seize the day'. Life is too short to be wasted on fighting or worrying. This is why I am very motivated to help people to solve their legal issues and conflicts."
Ariani comes from a family of entrepreneurs and has their ‘getting things done’ mentality. In February 2018 she joined Groenendijk & Kloppenburg lawyers.
