Mediation

COVID-19 UPDATE

We are pleased to announce Chambers building is officially open and all members of the 9SJS Mediation Group are able to host mediations again at 9 St John Street. To assist in preparing for face to face mediations we have prepared a short guide which you can find here.


Mediation is now a core element of the dispute resolution landscape. Its flexibility allows parties the opportunity to resolve their disputes on their own terms and to avoid the risks of going to court (and the associated costs of the litigation).

Nine St John Street's Mediation Group was established in 2011 to provide parties with an effective ADR solution suited to their needs. The Group, led by Richard Price, is made up of barristers from many of the practice groups in Chambers. Our mediators work across a wide range of areas including:

The Mediation Group is supported by Chambers’ renowned clerking team. Those clerks understand the specific needs of the parties in mediations, especially where other members of Chambers are instructed as advocates in a mediation conducted by a member of the Mediation Group.

Mediations can be hosted in Chambers (room-hire and refreshments are included in the mediation fee) or at other venues of the parties’ choice. In addition, our mediators are able to offer on-line mediations using Zoom. A 'Users Guide to Mediation' can be found here, for parties who are unfamiliar with the mediation process.

Our mediators operate a range of fee structures; for more information on those, or to discuss your requirements generally, please contact our clerking team on 0161 955 9000.
