In Laws Programme: Mediation as an effective means of dispute resolution

In Laws Programme: Mediation as an effective means of dispute resolution

Presented by Andrew Hildebrand, Mediator, and Philip Barden, ‘Mediator of the Year’. You will not find better experts to help you understand the massive advantage of mediation.

Costs and risk can make commencing court or other proceedings unattractive. On the other hand, negotiations between parties often become bogged down and discussions stall. This is where mediation comes in. Contracts and agreements often require parties to participate in mediation as a means of resolving disputes (often as a step in a “Dispute Resolution Procedure”) but those involved can be unsure about when to try mediation and how it works or how to suggest using a mediator when there’s no contractual requirement to do so. This seminar is designed to provide answers to questions and concerns you may have about the mediation process, from start to finish, as well as give you the opportunity to discuss mediation with a real life mediator!

Topics covered:

  • What is a mediation
  • What is the role of a mediator and how are they appointed
  • Advantages of mediation
  • How does a mediation help resolve disputes
  • How to use a mediator to defuse problems swiftly and improve a business relationship
  • Ask the mediator
