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.
