Mediation Updates & Cases Study

Mediation is now a well recognised alternative dispute resolution procedure. Mediation is inexpensive compared to arbitration and litigation, and it can result in a fast and effective solution for the parties. On 1st January 2010, the High Court Practice Direction No. 31 on Mediation (Practice Direction) came into effect empowering the Courts to make an adverse cost order against a party which has unreasonably refused to engage in mediation.  The effect of this is significant, in particular, it has led to a drastic increase in mediation. 

In this seminar, Mr Steven Yip, Partner of the Construction, Engineering and Infrastructure Group at Minter Ellison, will give a presentation on the process of mediation and go through some of the recent cases in relation to mediation.
