For mediators, the job is an exercise in rescue, to rescue people from the courts and sometimes from themselves.
I am a hearing officer and accredited mediator working in the trade marks registry. I qualified as a mediator with ADRg two years ago and have been involved in mediations across all IP disciplines. Also I have lectured on the subject to CIPA/ITMA and external agencies such as Central Law Training. We also train barristers at Cardiff University as part of their wider training. I am also a published author on IP matters and hold an LLM in Intellectual Property.
