Mediation as an alternative form of dispute resolution plays an important role in the early resolution of disputes or in achieving settlements during litigation or arbitration.
In many countries were Rouse practices, courts require - or at least strongly encourage - the parties to mediate a dispute.
Examples of some recent cases where Rouse lawyers have acted are:
- Acting as counsel in a mediation in relation to the termination of a franchise agreement
- Acting as counsel in a large international mediation relating to tobacco industry trade marks
- Acting as mediator in relation to an US International Trade Commission patent claim
- Acting as counsel on numerous court annexed mediations
