Last week we attended the longest day’s mediation we’ve ever been involved with. We did not get out until after 7.00pm. We almost finished settling six related Court actions.
Our clients have settled with the plaintiffs, but the plaintiffs and another party are still arguing about costs, so it may be a little while yet before it is settled.
Our 18-page position paper helped a lot.
In the end, our clients bought some peace for exactly half of the amount that they told us that they were prepared to pay, so they were happy, though we think they could have got away with paying even less.
