To help us ensure that your mediation progresses smoothly, we need:

  • Your prompt response to our requests for documentation to carry out money laundering checks
  • Payment of the mediator’s fees as ‘cleared’ funds before the mediation starts. In the event of non-payment the mediation may be postponed until payment is made, or cancelled
  • Notification of all those proposing to attend the mediation and the reason for their attention – this includes a relative or friend, whose purpose is to give you ‘moral support’
  • To know of any concerns or queries you have about the mediation agreement – it is better to clear these up in advance of the mediation, if possible
  • If we are organising catering on your behalf to know of any dietary needs or restrictions
  • If the mediator intends having an observer or trainee mediator in attendance confirmation that you do not object.

On the day of the mediation:

  • You will need to sign the mediation agreement, as will the mediator and the other party
  • Everyone, including the parties, the mediator, any observers and advisers, will sign the confidentiality agreement.

The mediator will:

  • Explain the fire safety procedures, availability of toilets and arrangements for lunch and other refreshments
  • Outline the mediation process
  • Confirm the finish time
  • Check that no one has a commitment that clashes with the mediation period
  • Ask for confirmation that appropriate decision-makers are present and, if necessary, there is easy access to the next level decision-maker
  • If the mediation is to be by telephone we will confirm to you in advance the dial-in details.
