On today’s episode of The Law Down Under Podcast, we interview commercial mediator, Mark Kelly. Mark is a highly regard and is one of New Zealand’s leading commercial mediators. Resolving commercial disputes through the court system can be time-consuming, expensive, complex and uncertain. Mediation offers an alternative platform to obtaining a resolution rather than one that is handed to the parties by a judge or arbitrator. In this episode, we talk with Mark about what exactly is mediation, why he transitioned from counsel to becoming a mediator, as well as some of the more technical aspects of mediation and negotiation generally. I hope you enjoy this episode with Mark Kelly.
