Is there a right time to mediate?

Mediation is often pushed back with these one liners:

"It's too early for mediation - we need to exchange pleadings."

"We need to build disclosure then the issues will crystalise."

You get the idea.

But the reality is by delaying, the issues take root: absorbing more cost and more management time.

It's far better to think of a quick, effective and creative solution which panders to the big picture commercially, rather than points of law.

Have a look at this very short video and you'll see exactly what I mean.
