Deal Mediation

Deal Mediation

Not all commercial mediations arise when parties have fallen out, are in dispute, have sued each other or are thinking of suing each other. Circumstances do arise where people realise they are better off together than apart, yet are unable to manage the balance of risk and reward in their contract renewal, joint venture, or basic terms of co-existence.

A mediator can help to generate or revive communication which may have stalled owing to lack of focus, interpersonal difficulties, or the unwitting escalation of conflict.

Charles Middleton-Smith is widely experienced in Deal Mediation cases. Below are examples of some recent engagements in this area:

  • Lengthy process over several months relating to the renewal of a multimillion pound contract for the provision of goods and services in healthcare sector: a major project surrounding the management of risk and reward
  • International corporate negotiation at CEO/Plc level regarding Sale and Purchase Agreement, key personnel service agreements, valuation of stock, loan notes, transfer of shares in multi million pound stock items, deferred consideration, termination of employment and consultancy, post-termination restrictions, ongoing profits, IP rights. Business sector – fine art
  • Lengthy process over several months concerning rights and responsibilities around management of jointly occupied building
