Programme Highlights:

Evaluative mediation has been promoted by the Department of Justice in the last three years starting on the specialised IP (Intellectual Properties) disputes, with a purpose to gain efficiency and effectiveness to results through focused mediation practice over the conventional, general, facilitative style.  In the Mediate-First Pledge Anniversary Conference May 2018, the DOJ has manifestly expressed to explore evaluative mediation for general applications.

 The crux to success in evaluative mediation lies on specialisation on custom-designed mediation process to be conducted by specialised mediators with expertise on the subjects of the dispute.  Evaluative mediator will be entrusted by the parties on his / her specialised capabilities to provide credible evaluation during evaluative mediation whereupon the parties vest their reliance in search for the best way to settle their disputes amicably. 

Specialisation on resolution of construction disputes through specialised construction arbitration, mediation, adjudication and expert witness has always been the core business of HKCAC since establishment in 2006.  In 2009, between the two prevalent styles, evaluative and facilitative mediation, HKCAC developed, promulgated and promote the practice of Specialised Facilitative Mediation (SFM) taking the best of both worlds.  In the advent of evaluative mediation becoming a trend in Hong Kong, HKCAC will provide in the HKIE seminar insights and practical use between evaluative, SFM and general facilitative mediation styles, and how parties and mediators can procure better results in getting to settlement of construction disputes in mediation.
