Mediation clause

Many companies already insert a Mediation clause into individual contracts or into their terms of contract as a preliminary dispute resolution step before litigation. A Mediation clause can be inserted in all sorts of contracts.

You are interested in limiting the effects of disputes on your business and want to strengthen your business relationships even when it comes to a discrepancy? Then we recommend the following mediation clause*:

"In the event of a dispute arising based on this contract, the parties agree to conduct mediation. The mediation shall be administered by (name a Chamber of Commerce or a Mediation Centre). The parties agree to equally share the costs of mediation."

* You may find other samples on the website of your Chamber of Commerce or Mediation Centre. Please select a country.
