CIVIL & COMMERCIAL CASES:

sample agreement to mediate

This is my standard mediation agreement in civil & commercial cases. My terms of mediation are always attached to form part of this agreement -- they can be reviewed at the tab on the right.

Note that this form refers to an existing lawsuit. If mediation were undertaken before any lawsuit were issued, reference to the Court file number (para. 2) and to "pleadings in the action" (para. 6) would be deleted - and, if no action has been commenced, counsel must be mindful of and plan for any pending limitation period, as time continues to run.

Caution: if this sample is used as a precedent, take care to review it and make revisions as necessary to address the circumstances of your case.
