Mediation of Insurance Disputes in the London Market
David Stern's latest bulletin on insurance and mediation is now available to download on the link above. It aims to set out how mediation is perceived, what drivers there are for change and how these drivers are likely to impact the use of mediation as a dispute resolution technique for London Market disputes in the future.
David would be glad to present this bulletin as an in-house seminar. Please contact Chambers if you would like further information on this or any of our forthcoming seminars.

Though I mediated several big ticket London coverage cases in that fair city while defending environmental insurance claims cases (primarily against the petroleum companies my husband was then representing) the power of most settlement discussions was in the hands of the lead negotiator for Equitas - a master deal-maker who left most mediators in the dust.
I believe that the quality of mediation practice has greatly improved since that time (late 1990's, early 21st century) primarily as a result of attorneys entering the practice (with all due deference to my retired Judge mediator friends). I'm happy to see London giving mediation a higher profile.
