After the implementation of Civil Justice Reform in Hong Kong, most disputants have to attend mediation meeting before their cases are presented in the court and executives are often required to represent their own organization in the mediation. Good preparation is half way to success and executives have to prepare for a successful mediation meeting whenever dispute arises.

Participants will learn how to assess the suitability of their case for mediation; how and where to appoint an appropriate mediator for resolution of their dispute case; how to collaborate with their legal representatives before and during the mediation process and the different negotiation approaches that they may adopt in mediation. Above all, participants will learn how to borrow the power of the mediator to achieve their optimal outcomes.

  • Decide on the suitability of mediation;
  • Preparation for the mediation, including appointing an appropriate mediator and briefing the mediator in pre-mediation meeting;
  • Preparation and the strategies to be adopted for the mediation meeting.
