What is?

The task of the independent neutral is to serve the Parties, whether in mediation, neutral evaluation, arbitration or any other process of ADR. The neutral’s role may be specified in the relevant contract provision or defined by agreement between the parties, and it is the task of the neutral to fill the role in accordance with the choice of the parties.

The negotiations during the mediation got stuck several times but on each occasion these were resumed after he (the mediator) succeeded in getting us to change focus. After two days of tough negotiations we finally got an agreement covering some 40 outstanding issues. I was very relieved.”
