QLD Roundtable, 12 February 2015

Mediating a dispute

The 'Mediating a Dispute' round table will cover from both a franchisee and a franchisor perspective practical steps that each can take in order to enhance the prospects of resolving a dispute through mediation. The round table will cover:

  1. How to set up a mediation including the new requirements under the revised Franchising Code of Conduct and the consequences of non-compliance;
  2. What to do to prepare for a mediation including the persons to attend, the material to bring, the information to provide to the mediator and questions to ask in any pre-mediation conference with the mediator;
  3. How to mediate including different styles of mediation, offers and option generation, reality testing, requests of the mediator and legal representation;
  4. Steps after mediation including implementing the agreed resolution, continuing negotiations post mediation and other options.

Participants will be encouraged to share experiences and ask questions as they arise although a general question and answer session will also be available at the end of the round table pending time constraints.

Attendees should come away with a general understanding of the requirements for mediation under the Code, how mediation works and some preparatory steps for participating or for post mediation conduct.

The session will be hosted by Alicia Hill, Principal, McInnes Wilson Lawyers

Alicia is a Queensland Law Society Accredited Specialist in Commercial Litigation, a National Accredited Mediator on the Office of Franchising Mediation Panel of mediators and a graded Arbitrator through the Institute of Arbitrators and Mediators Australia.
