Mediation is a prominent feature of modern litigation. Most disputes will be mediated before trial.
All barristers in our Chambers accept briefs to appear and advise parties at mediations.
Members of Chambers are accredited as mediators under the National Mediation Accreditation System, the International Mediation Institute, the Singapore International Mediation Institute and by the Resolution Institute as an Advanced Mediator.
12 Wentworth Selborne Chambers was one of the first sets in Sydney to have a purpose-built mediation space within its premises to accommodate mediations, arbitrations and other ADR conferences.
The sound insulated rooms have Wi-Fi capabilities and are available to conduct mediations free of charge to parties who retain our barristers as counsel or as a mediator. Our space is equipped with audio-visual capabilities to enable parties to join remotely.
Our mediators are also adept at providing secure online mediation platforms that mirror the practice of traditional face-to-face mediation, providing both a virtual joint party room and private breakout rooms for parties. Using these systems, parties and their legal representatives are able to meet together and individually, while the mediator can join any party, or combination of parties, confidentially at any time.
