The English courts are increasingly encouraging parties in dispute to seek to resolve their differences at mediation. Costs sanctions may be imposed on parties who unreasonably refuse to mediate. Some jurisdictions are imposing mandatory mediation for certain disputes.

Resolving disputes using mediation is a proven tool that can achieve successful outcomes while saving time, money and preserving relationships and reputations in ways that litigation or arbitration often cannot. Further, mediation offers a broader range of outcomes than those available through litigation or arbitration. Recent statistics indicate that 92% of mediations settle on the day or soon after.

Mediation is suitable for a wide range of domestic and international disputes including those with external suppliers and purchasers, multi-party, regulatory, plus internally to resolve employment and workplace disputes.

On this course you will learn what you need to know to represent your company successfully at a mediation. You will learn about the process of mediation, how to select a mediator, how to prepare yourself and those attending for it, what to expect on the day, how to negotiate and communicate better during the mediation, how to deal with an impasse at a mediation, how to reach a deal and how to get the most out of the process.
