Chambers Ireland, in conjunction with bodies from the legal and mediation profession, launched the Business and Commercial Mediation pilot scheme on the 1st September 2015. The pilot was developed by a cross section of bodies (Chambers Ireland, the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators, the Law Society, the Bar Council of Ireland and the Mediator’s Institute of Ireland) with the objective of promoting the use of mediation as a cost and resource efficient way for businesses to resolve commercial disputes.

Parties who are interested in mediation can apply to have their case referred to the pilot’s panel of mediators. For more information on the scheme, please visit Chambers Ireland website at
