Paul Johnson discusses “A Positive Decision to Mediate”
In an article discussing remote mediation, Paul Johnson explains why it is "A Positive Decision to Mediate". The article was prompted by two recent decisions: DSN v Blackpool Football Club Ltd  EWHC 610 (QB) and Wales t/a Selective Investment Services v CBRE Management Services & Anor  4 WLUK 355 and the defendant's refusal to mediate.
