Mediation is a widely used means for parties to resolve their disputes in a safe and confidential environment, with the assistance of an experienced mediation professional. Whether mandated as part of the litigation process, as in the case of Family Dispute Resolution, required as part of a contractual dispute resolution mechanism, or as a voluntary preliminary step in court action, mediation is part of the litigation landscape.
Our members are actively involved in all types of mediation, whether facilitative, transformative or evaluative, both as counsel and as mediators, including in specialist areas such as family, relationship property, employment, intellectual property, construction, insurance, property and leasehold, and commercial disputes more generally.
