Seminar: Mediation in practice
Tue 28 March 2017, 10:00 – 13:00 BST
Registration: 09:30 - 10:00
Seminar: 10:00 - 13:00 followed by lunch
This is a seminar exploring mediation in the commercial context. Many contracts specifically refer to the need for parties to consider mediation in a dispute escalation process. In other instances, the parties may simply wish to explore Alternative Dispute Resolution methods including mediation as a means of settling a dispute.
We will look at what mediation means and how it can be used to either dispense with disputes before they escalate or to settle cases going through court or arbitration. In doing so we will draw on our experience of mediation in the construction, infrastructure and IT sectors in particular.
An introduction to mediation. What is mediation? Why use it and when to use it? What are the other forms of ADR available?
Looking at mediation from the mediator's perspective – how do people become mediators? How you would approach mediation from the mediator's perspective and what you would expect from the parties.
How to address issues through mediation before they escalate
