IP Mediation

Mediation is a way of resolving disputes without going to court. It is cheaper and quicker than litigation and the outcome is usually beneficial to all parties. Mediation allows you and the opposing party to talk about the dispute with the help of an independent mediator. The mediators role is not to make a decision on the dispute but to help you find a solution that both parties can accept.

A court will expect you to have attempted to resolve matters by mediation before starting legal proceedings. It will also expect you to have properly considered a form of alternative dispute resolution.
