When Fair Practice was initially founded in 2013, the objective was to give our clients access to justice through mediation. Over time our services have grown to include additional ways our clients can resolve their disputes through forums alternate to litigation, making litigation a last resort, if at all. Our objective is to mimimise the traumatising experiences that conflict brings, while guiding our clients all the way through to achieving a satisfying outcome.

Fair Practice Founder
Veerash Srikison is an advocate by title and a collaborative lawyer and mediator by profession. She has obtained accreditations and qualifications through various institutes in South Africa and internationally in mediation and negotiation. In 2010 she chose to focus her practice in alternate ways of dispute resolution that did not begin with the anxiety driven and costly experiences brought on by litigation. With her mediation experience beginning in family/divorce mediation, her approach has always been to put the interests of the clients and any children involved above long drawn court battles. She has since gone on to mediate in corporate disputes while maintaining her approach to adopt effective communication methods in an effort to create mutual ground between disputants so that they reach outcomes they believe to be fair.
In addition to conducting herself in an impartial manner through dispute resolution services, she has gone on to train professionals in every sector on the benefits and principles of mediation and its impact on the emotional well-being of anyone in a dispute. Veerash’s expertise is globally recognised and she is often invited to judge international mediation competitions. She engages with international audiences on South Africa’s developments in moving towards placing mediation as the first ancillary approach to resolving disputes.
Her endorsement of dispute resolution that provides legal care to clients has been featured in published articles and various media platforms. She has conducted workshops within communities on negotiating realistic outcomes, addressed audiences on raising peacemakers and has been invited to speak at conferences addressing less adversarial approaches to conflict.
