Mediations on the increase

19 July 2012

CEDR, the dispute resolution body, conducted a mediation audit in 2012 for civil and commercial mediators and has recorded that the annual number of mediations has risen from 6,000 to 8,000 since their last survey.

Interestingly, they have found that 90 per cent of cases now settle at mediation.

Partner Paul Gordon comments that the trend is borne out in the work of our dispute resolution team, who often settle civil and commercial cases via mediation.

We have three accredited mediators at the firm. If you need commercial and pragmatic mediators, we’re here to help so please get in touch.
