Mediation Agreement Was Signed

September 27, 2021

In Farm Assist Limited (in liquidation) against The Secretary of State for the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (No. 2), the case concerned whether the settlement agreement resulting from mediation for economic hardship should be set aside. Here it examines the legal qualification of the contractual document drawn up at the end of the mediation and the importance of this document. Open mediation means that anyone – you, your partner and your mediator – can testify in court about what happened during your mediation. All documents can also be shared. The starting point is that there will be no agreement until everything is resolved! If an agreement is reached that day, it will obviously have to be drawn up. If the parties have mandated lawyers, the ideal situation is for the lawyers to design the agreement to sign there and then.
