LCAM/HSF Mediation In Arbitration Survey Initial Results

This post first appeared on the Herbert Smith Freehills Arbitration Notes blog, here.

The Mediation in Arbitration Survey is now closed and we are very grateful to the more than 50 mediators who have shared their experience with Herbert Smith Freehills and the London Chamber of Arbitration and Mediation.

The survey covered the current take-up of mediation in international arbitration, the stages of the dispute at which such mediations most commonly occur, claim values and settlement rates.

We are delighted to share an initial video snapshot of the Mediation in Arbitration Survey results, which can be viewed here.

We look forward to reporting in more detail on the results of the survey in due course.
