Incorporate Mediation within your Practice Model Now

Mediation is a necessary adjunct to your practice and it can enhance, supplement and embellish your existing skills and resources, creating additional sources of income:

  • Do you practise or intend to practise within: Insolvency, Loan Restructuring and/or Debt Management, Human Resources, the HSE,
  • Are you the trusted business adviser?
  • Do you feel capable of assisting clients in an alternative, time and cost efficient, resolution of commercial disputes?
  • Have you diversified your practice or intend to diversify your practice to include change management services or conflict management services?
  • Do you wish to create additional income streams?

Why now?

Exploit the enormous practice potential afforded by the increasingly supportive political, legislative and judicial framework now marking mediation as a mainstream process in the resolution of Irish civil and commercial disputes:

  • The enactment of The Mediation Bill is now imminent (Q4 2015 and/or Q1 2016) – “I intend to proceed quickly with enactment of the Bill following its publication later this year”,

Minister for Justice and Equality (Deputy Frances Fitzgerald) at the launch of the annual report of the Free Legal Advice Centres [FLAC] on Monday 6th July 2015;

  • Learn how The Mediation Bill may be considered truly radical in that it provides an ‘out of court’ alternative and additional access to justice in everyday life for Irish citizens and businesses (i.e., the Bill, inter alia, stays the statute of limitations whilst mediation is attempted and so avoids the necessity to issue legal proceedings to prevent a claim being statute barred, provides for enforceability of agreements to mediate and of agreements arising out mediation, enshrines the confidentiality of process, and many other provisions of enormous consequence).
  • The Personal Insolvency Act 2012 has already created an out-of-court, alternative dispute resolution (ADR), mechanism for individual debtors and their creditors (with which all accountants are familiar and where mediation skills are particularly relevant).
  • The Workplace Relations Act 2015, highly supportive of mediation and almost certainly the most significant development in Irish employment law in a generation, was signed into law by Minister for Jobs, Enterprise & Innovation (Deputy Richard Bruton) on Wednesday 20th May 2015 and is operative from October 1st 2015.
  • Why was there no mediation process? ... Was one party or the other acting unreasonably? Should one or the other party have taken the initiative? These are legitimate questions ...”

As per MacMenamin J., Fitzpatrick -v- The Board of Management of St. Mary’s Touraneena National School & the Minister for Education and Science, Supreme Court [2013] IESC 62.
