Mediation: Compliance Risk and Financial Checks

Due Diligence

What is Due Diligence?

We are compelled by law and regulations to:

Why is this necessary?

The Proceeds of Crime Act 2002, and the Sanction Regimes apply to all firms.

Legal regulators require firms to know the participants to mediation. (Even though Mediation is not a legal service we are still required to comply with the legal regulators and the Law.) The firm can be subject to fines and imprisonment for not complying and thus we seek your cooperation in undertaking these checks.

Since the Russian invasion of Ukraine, the legal regulators have been particularly robust in ensuring that firms carry out relevant checks.

If you have instructed a solicitor in the last 2 years you will be familiar with the compliance checks generally required, you might also have noticed similar types of checks are carried out by conveyancers, accountants, and financial institutions such as banks, building societies, investments providers and auction houses.

We are required to verify identity and address, whether you are an individual and/or an entity(such as a sole trader, partnership, company, trust, charity, etc).  

Can a previous due diligence check be sent to us?

No, we cannot place reliance on such checks, we are required to undertake our own checks.

What do you need to do?

What does it cost?

Mandatory Risk and Compliance checks – administrative charges

Can we inform you of the outcome of such checks or give you obtain a copy?

No, we cannot provide you with a copy of the checks, or the outcome.

If we are not able to proceed, we might not be able to inform you of the reason why as this could be regarded as tipping off or some other crime.  

Do people object to completing these checks?

We have not found any reluctance by people who want to us our services. We cannot proceed to an information Meeting or Mediation Session without the parties co-operating with the checks and requests for information.

What do Litigation Law Firms ask for?

Having regard to the legal regulatory guidance it is likely that you will be asked to provide information and documentation pursuant to the individual firm’s anti-money laundering, compliance, and financial sanction onboarding policy. They are also likely to charge you for undertaking such checks.

Mediation Fees

Information Meetings

Before you can book an Information Meeting you must comply with our Due Diligence requirements.  Administrative charges apply.

Why Should I book an Information Meeting?

Most people are aware of what happens at court, and what a court looks like.

But you might not be aware of what happens during a Mediation Session. Instead of it being a surprise on the day, we would suggest that you book an Information Meeting so that we can provide you with information.

It also gives you a no obligation opportunity to consider if our mediation service is right for you and the other party.

You can bring your solicitor along if you require. (We will need the name of your solicitor in advance as we will have to check that they are registered at the Law Society, this is part of Due Diligence.)
