Chapter Summary

Mediation has a cost/benefit ratio like no other dispute resolution process and is now firmly embedded in the dispute resolution world. There are certainly less obvious ways in which mediators can provide a service to the commercial world, and the author's recent experiences, coupled with anecdotal evidence, suggests that mediators are beginning to work in areas far beyond their traditional offering. "Project mediation" is a term that is gaining recognition in the United Kingdom. Project mediation puts the process very much in the forefront of the hearts and minds of contracting parties, but at the outset of a relationship, as opposed to sometime after the crystallization of a dispute. Mediators have, for far too long, been pigeon-holed as dispute resolvers to be called up when parties decide, as they usually do, that enough is enough in the adversarial ring.

Keywords:contracting parties; deal mediation; dispute resolvers; project mediation
