    On the rise, recognition

    Commercial mediation more than ever before, is on the rise. More and more individuals, organisations and businesses are now more aware, realising and recognising the benefits of training in civil and commercial mediation.

    This is not surprising, due to a spate of recent high-profile High Court, Technology, Construction Court and Court of Appeal decisions. Spanning all the way back to 1999. Alongside this, several governmental departments, ombudsman, consumer and complaints schemes are recognising mediation more and more. Having implemented their own mediation procedures.

    In 101 cases, ranging from Ohpen, Farm Assist Limited, Dunnett to Cowl. The majority of these cases identified commercial mediation should have been used in those particular cases.

    Had it have been, it would have saved several thousands of pounds in legal fees, as well as time and stress. In fact, the courts now even penalise parties on their legal costs. If they initially refused to mediate. Even if they win at trial.
