Mediation & Conciliation Network
The most trusted, neutral and result focused procedure for parties locked in complex disputes.
FICM is regularly contacted in relation to disputes where one party wishes to submit a dispute to mediation, but no mediation agreement exists between the parties, for example in infringement disputes or in cases pending before the courts. To facilitate submission of such disputes to FICM Mediation, a party may submit a unilateral Request for Mediation to FICM under FICM Mediation Rules. FICM may then assist the parties or, upon request, may appoint an external neutral to provide the required assistance.
