You Can Drag a Horse to Mediation…

Much of the attention on the Jackson reforms has been related to the issue of proportionality of costs but Lord Justice Jackson also advocated a resurgence of interest in alternative dispute resolution (ADR) and in particular mediation. The courts have always been in favour of mediation and in his latest opinion piece for the New Law Journal, “You can drag a horse to mediation…”, Graham Huntley considers mediation in relation to commercial disputes and the practicalities of making mediation compulsory.

Graham Huntley is a partner at Signature Litigation LLP and a London Solicitors Litigation Association (LSLA) Committee member. The full article was first published in the New Law Journal on 4 July 2013.
