The Herbert Smith Freehills (HSF) arbitration team has partnered with the London Chamber
of Arbitration and Mediation (LCAM) to conduct a snapshot survey of more than 50
mediators, exploring their experience of mediation in arbitration in 2019 and 2020. The
results of the survey shed light on current take-up of mediation in arbitration, the stages of
the dispute at which these mediations are most likely to occur, claim values, and settlement
rates. In this blog post the HSF team discuss and reflect on mediator responses to the
survey, examining what the survey results reveal about the current trends in mediation in
international arbitration.
