Sign a binding agreement

The Agreement to Mediate states that there is no binding agreement until it is written and signed by or on behalf of the parties.

In issued claims the lawyers will usually prepare a Tomlin Order, in unissued claims a compromise agreement would be prepared. Draft agreements should be brought to the mediation to save time drafting once a settlement has been reached.

The claimant lawyer and the insurer will usually want to settle costs as well as damages and the mediator will assist with this negotiation too.
