MEDIATION IN HONG KONG

In recent years, Hong Kong has taken huge steps in moving forward with their mediation processes. The Mediation Ordinance (Cap. 620), which came into force in 2013, provides a regulatory framework for the conduct of mediation in Hong Kong. It was designed to promote, encourage and facilitate the resolution of disputes by mediation, and to protect the confidential nature of mediation communications.

The Hong Kong government has committed to a “Mediate First” approach, promoting the continued development of mediation in Hong Kong.

Mediation is an Alternative Dispute Resolution procedure; it is a voluntary, confidential and private conflict resolution process in which an independent, neutral third party, the mediator, helps those involved, to reach their own settlement agreement. The mediator’s role is to facilitate communication and encourage the parties to reach a mutually agreeable solution, usually within just the one day.

I am therefore both surprised and delighted that the case settled at mediation.”
