We are pleased to extend an invitation to join us at our next breakfast seminar “Mandatory ADR – choosing the right process for the right case.”

In light of the recent Court of Appeal decision in Churchill v Merthyr Tydfil CBC, for the first time parties can now be ordered by the Court to engage in ADR – but what does this actually mean for my clients, and what are their options? 

Join us for a comprehensive discussion led by experts in the field, including Ali Tabari, Rob Mundy, Simon Clegg, Jonathan Gale, and Peter Brewer (partner at Clarke Willmott and qualified mediator).

The seminar will delve into critical topics, such as:

  1. Determining when mediations are the appropriate choice and when they may not be.
  2. Exploring options for Early Neutral Evaluations or FDRs and understanding whether they must be conducted through the court.
  3. Addressing actions to take if a Judge mandates engagement in ADR.
  4. Recognizing situations where seeking an order for mandatory ADR might be advantageous.
