Dublin Mediation Day Promotes Greater Use of Mediation by Irish Business

Nov 20, 2015

“Dublin Mediation Day” was hosted by Chambers Ireland this morning (20/11/2015) in the Law Society, Blackhall Place. Focusing on the theme, Commercial Mediation in Ireland- Current Developments and Future Challenges, this seminar will discuss how mediation is changing the way companies resolve commercial disputes.

Speaking at the conference, Director of Policy and Communications Mark O’ Mahoney said, “Chambers Ireland has been promoting alternative dispute resolution and mediation as the most effective and efficient option when it comes to resolving disputes amongst businesses. Irish businesses face many challenges in terms of their competitiveness, and using mediation to avoid the high costs associated with unnecessary litigation should be an obvious choice. Unfortunately, it has been our experience that mediation is not used as frequently amongst the Irish business community as it could be.”

“This seminar is one of a series of initiatives Chambers Ireland are undertaking to demonstrate to the business community the value of mediation and alternative dispute resolution. Chambers Ireland recently launched a Mediation Scheme with the goal of encouraging more Irish businesses to consider using mediation when commercial disputes arise. This Scheme is an example of Chambers of Commerce and the legal and alternative dispute resolution communities cooperating to support the Irish business community” he concluded.
