“Mediation? The most expensive sandwiches I’ve ever eaten.”

12/05/16

On the 12th May Brick Court Chambers held a Mediation Symposium.  Guests had been invited to complete a short online survey and then to attend the symposium to discuss the results.

The questions discussed were:

  • In commercial mediation, what works and what doesn't work for you? How would you suggest mediation can be improved? 
  • How is mediation changing?  To what extent is it becoming a more protracted, "long-tail" process? What more can mediators do to help you as things change? 
  • Does the commercial world make proper use of mediation now?  How much resistance do you still see to the idea of mediation?
  • How likely do you think it is that we may reach the point of "peak mediation"? Are we there already? What more do commercial clients need from mediators?
