About the Webinar

Private mediation has become popular in all forms of litigation including disputes over wills and family provision matters. Mediation which is court ordered is usually easy enough to enforce. But what if a deal which has been brokered through private mediation falls over? This presentation considers the risks and the related and preventive strategies:

  • The risks:
    • change of mind generally
    • undue influence and coercion in family disputes - can this vitiate settlement agreements?
    • mistake and misrepresentation
  • NSW only - unfair contracts legislation
  • Case review - Tomac v Papp, Dark v Dark, Di Marti, Angius v Salier, Boardman v Boardman, Jennings v Jennings
  • Risk mitigation:
    • agreements to agree generally - Masters and Cameron in the context of mediation
    • procedure when parties do the deal
    • processes the mediator should follow to minimize risk
