Mediation is a flexible practice and process of negotiation in a relationship to resolve domestic and international disputes, conducted confidentially in which a trained neutral mediator actively assists people and/or organisations to work towards a negotiated agreement of a dispute which will result in a reduced cost and time between the parties involved.
The unforeseen challenges raised from Covid-19, could not leave unaffected the Mediation practice, since the need for social distancing moved the traditional in-person to remote/online Mediation.

The losses that were sustained as a result of the actions of the traders at UBS bank amounted to $2.3 billion. Mr Adoboli’s defence team argued that he was not guilty of fraud as the bank had encouraged the traders at the bank to trade in the manner that led to the losses being incurred.
