ADR webinar
Written by:



On Thursday 9th December, Tony Verduyn chaired a discussion between fellow mediators Naomi Candlin and Jonathan Gale, to consider the implications of the recent paper by the Civil Justice Council on Compulsory ADR.

They looked at a range of practical issues to explore the pros and cons of mediation, including:

  • the types of dispute best suited to this form of ADR,
  • the ‘sweet spot’ to settle a dispute,
  • the likely approach of the courts to parties’ refusal to mediate,
  • the pros and cons of independent vs judge-led mediation,
  • the likely approach of local courts and tribunals on the way ahead.
