Why you should attend

Increasingly recognised as a cost-effective way of resolving disputes, mediation brings conflicting parties to a discussion facilitated by an impartial, professional mediator. The parties retain control of the outcome of the dispute, but the mediator negotiates between them, working towards a resolution without the need to enter litigation.

RICS has built upon its traditional, facilitative mediation service to develop a new, robust and evaluative training programme: This includes:

  • Analytical: Helping parties to analyse the circumstances, law, evidence, as well as the strengths and weaknesses of their case to empower them to make pragmatic and viable settlement decisions.
  • Commercial: The training encompasses wide commercial as well as narrow legal realities to provide a flexible settlement, which courts or arbitration cannot.
  • Restorative: Focusing on restoring the business relationship between parties, proceedings are completely confidential to limit any further damage.
  • Expert: With many years’ experience and expertise in the field of the dispute, our mediators help parties to reach a common-sense settlement, or to narrow the issues in dispute, reducing court or arbitration costs. The extensive "been there, done that" experience of our mediators equips them to advise and guide the parties through the mediation process.
