The Academy of Experts – Experts Participating in Commercial Mediation – Guidance Note

26th Mar 2021

Max Twivy was a member of the working party that created The Academy of Experts (TAE) new “Guidance Note for Experts taking part in the Commercial Mediation process” which launched in January 2021.

The Guidance Notes are designed to help experts instructed to participate in commercial mediations, and to highlight potential ethical and conflict issues which may arise for experts in the context of commercial mediations,” commented Max Twivy.

While the Guidance Notes were designed to offer guidance to experts who participate on the instruction of a party in a commercial mediation taking place in England and Wales, experts participating in commercial mediations in other jurisdictions will also find them helpful.
