The people that make it happen.
Immediation was conceived and designed by Melbourne barrister Laura Keily in response to the problems she encountered with ordinary businesses and individuals gaining access to justice at a reasonable price. Immediation has been brought to fruition by a team of leading Australian barristers, solicitors and in-house legal counsel who share a deep respect for the rule of law, and an unrivalled understanding of the practices and processes of dispute resolution and legal technology.
