Lawfuel’s Mediator Power List article says professional Mediation is a growing field

“Just as the wheels of justice grind slowly – and expensively – the growth of mediation as a fast and less expensive method of obtaining satisfaction for disputes has grown rapidly.

Even at a global political level, mediators are playing an increasing role with Warren Sowerby having advised the United Nations on the use of mediator as a dispute resolution mechanism.

In New Zealand, mediation is incorporated into over 60 statutes and has grown rapidly as a faster and less expensive means of resolving disputes than the Courts which can refer matters to mediation or various tribunals.”
