Herbert Smith Freehills’ publication  When to mediate in a dispute’  is the third in our series of ADR Practical Guides, designed to provide practical insights into various processes falling under the banner of ADR, with a particular focus on mediation.

This third guide sets out a series of factors and questions to consider in identifying suitable opportunities to mediate in the lifecycle of a dispute – recognising that, in general, the earlier a mediation takes place, the earlier the opportunity reach consensual resolution and control costs.
