The right Mediator
for the matter

Mediation is a form of dispute resolution that is an alternative to litigation.

However, that is an over-simplification. Contextually, it is an essential part of the litigation process and operationally it can also be an effective strategic tool. When, How and Why parties participate in a mediation are critical considerations.

Barristers are the litigation experts, focusing their practices on the art of advocacy and strategic dispute management. It stands to reason, therefore, that when you are considering appointing a mediator, barristers should be at the top of your list.

Hemmant’s List includes a diverse range of Barristers with extensive mediation experience and a broad range of special interests and technical knowledge.

Hemmant’s List

CONFIDENCE. CONVENIENCE. CHOICE
Hemmant’s List is a unique offering in Queensland.

The List provides a single point of contact to identify the right mediator for the matter, from a diverse list of counsel, based on experience, expertise and cost. The diversity of the list also assists those seeking to support equitable briefing practices.

The List Clerk can advise which barrister is suitable for the mediation by virtue of his or her experience, expertise, availability and cost.

Solicitors and clients may make informed choices as to whom to brief to act as Mediator, by enquiry of the clerk (07 3505 3969 / hemmantslist@qldbar.asn.au) or use of this website.

eBriefing

Hemmant’s List Mediators and Barristers offer an eBriefing solution, via the eBrief Ready platform.

eBrief Ready has been built exclusively for the legal profession to create and share briefs electronically. It is a safe, secure, Australian based, e-brief platform maximising efficiency and minimising costs in the briefing process.

Key features include:

  • Document search & annotation via Optical Character Recognition and hyperlinking
  • Automated brief index creation and pagination
  • Access via device anywhere without compromising file security (hosted on Australian based servers)
  • Easy to use. Faster and more efficient than paper or scanned briefs
  • Reduced impact on the environment. At the start of 2020, eBrief Ready has helped barristers and law firms save over 350 trees (2.9M sheets of paper)

Virtual Conferencing

Hemmant’s List Mediators are also familiar with and adept in managing mediations via online conferencing tools such as Microsoft Teams and Zoom.

Mediations where decision makers are attending remotely are particularly challenging and require the Mediator to be creative in finding ways to build rapport with the parties and manage the negotiation process.
