Exeter Mediation Scheme

14 March 2003
The facts

The Exeter Court based Mediation Scheme was formally opened today by Baroness Scotland and the presiding Judge Mrs Justice Hallett. The system will provide for Court referred mediation to a Court based (and free) mediation suite that will be available once a week for 3 hours after the Court has finished sitting. Mediators will be provided by the Court on the basis of a rota. 7 mediation organisations appear on the rota, including Devon Mediation, a local organisation and CEDR. The mediation fee payable in advance by both parties will be £450.00 for a Fast Track and £650.00 for a Multi Track case. Whilst the action is referred to mediation, the case will be stayed. At the conclusion of the mediation if successful, the matter will be referred to the Mediation Judge for a Consent Order. Litigators can expect adverse costs orders if they unreasonably fail to mediate.

The disappearance of LIBOR

Companies should undertake a comprehensive review and audit to identify those products and legacy contracts that are LIBOR-linked and carry out an in-depth risk assessment of discontinuation. Where possible, companies should look at appointing an individual to oversee the programme.
