The world has changed and continues to change. The demand for swift, smart, and cost-effective problem-solving is stronger than ever before. Mediation has emerged as the way to achieve this. Lawyers are naturally apprehensive of swift, smart solutions due to the tensions of being rewarded adequately. The concerns are real. There really seems to be no fiscal incentive to solve problems for clients fast. But is that old-thinking?
There are observable changes in the dispute resolution market and demands for intelligent workable methodologies are picking up. Will the current and future problem-solver anticipate the presumption of mediation as a first step to dispute resolution? The International Centre for Dispute Resolution (“ICDR”) Mediation Rules 2021 incorporated a presumption of mediation in its Arbitration rules. International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes (“ICSID”) is discussing the proposed ICSID
Mediation Rules in the next few months. Why is mediation now the talk of the international town? This session addresses the whats and whys of mainstreaming mediation and the hows of exploring a sustainable practice from this.
