The Greenshoots Podcast by Appleyard Lees – episode 26 – Mediation: an alternative to litigation?

Mediation is a form of cost-effective, confidential alternative dispute resolution (ADR), in which a neutral third party, or mediator, assists two parties to negotiate a settlement outside of court.


In this episode, Appleyard Lees partners and solicitors Bill Lister and Chris Hoole discuss the benefits of mediation vs. court proceedings, and how mediation in intellectual property cases can differ to non-intellectual property cases.
