Substantial experience in leading high-stakes mediations, ensuring a balance is achieved between the sensitivities and commercial realities of a dispute.
Understanding your drivers
While cost may not always be the main concern in many media, sports and entertainment cases, confidentiality and privacy may be. We have handled a substantial number of mediations where confidentiality and keeping matters out of the public domain has been paramount.

Experienced in mediating the full range of disputes including:
Mediation is an independent process involving intervention by an unbiased third party to resolve a dispute.
Courts now expect parties to litigation to settle. In most cases, mediation offers a more commercially-viable and cost-effective approach to dispute resolution.
We have settled over 90% of cases on the day of mediation, or shortly after.
Court fees were increased substantially in 2015. Mediation is a financially attractive alternative.
It can take years for cases to come to trial. A mediation can be arranged in a few weeks.
The entire mediation process is confidential – before, during and after.
Mediation allows people to “get things off their chest” without the stress of appearing in court.
The cost benefits of attempting mediation compared with not are overwhelming.
The mediator assists them in trying to reach a negotiated settlement, which can be binding, rather than a court imposing a decision outside the control of the parties.
Mediation offers outcomes that no court could achieve – new commercial agreements (however much they seemed unlikely!) are common.
