You are here:  Mediation


medling The SCC Mediation Rules offer a speedy and cost-effective dispute resolution method for parties wishing to avoid litigation and arbitral proceedings.

Parties often continue to co-operate after the closure of a successful SCC mediation procedure. This illustrates the great advantage of mediation as compared with arbitration and litigation.

A condition for mediation is that the parties are in agreement to use a mediator. Such agreement may be included in a business contract as a mediation clause.
