New Mediation Act in Ireland

Ireland adopted a new Mediation Act on 2 October 2017. The Act requires litigants to consider mediation as a means of resolving a dispute. The Act is intended to reduce workload of courts and create more efficient conditions for settling disputes on the basis of a mutual agreement.

According to the Mediation Act if a party unreasonably refuses to engage in the mediation process, the court may impose a cost sanction on such party, potentially including costs of the other party as well.
