Social-distancing and travel restrictions did not prevent Richard Price from helping several parties settle their Inheritance Act

What do you get when you take 10 participants (split into 3 groups), 1 mediator and 14 hours of on-line mediation via Zoom? The answer, after a lot of detailed discussion and hard negotiation, is 1 settlement agreement.

Social-distancing and travel restrictions did not prevent Richard Price, one of Nine St John Street’' specialist mediators, from helping the parties based in London, Leeds and Manchester, settle their long-running Inheritance Act in Chambers' first on-line mediation which took place on 31 March.

Commenting after the mediation Richard said that "you are never going to be able to match the benefits of a face to face mediation where everyone is physically in the same place by mediating remotely but whilst the current restrictions remain in place the fact that we can offer our mediation services to our clients via on-line platforms such as Zoom means that parties can continue to benefit from the opportunity that mediation gives them to resolve their disputes away from the Courts and on their own terms."
