“I was involved as a Co-Mediator in a transnational dispute involving parties in the United States and New Zealand. For various reasons associated with the COVID-19 pandemic, it was always going to be a complex exercise for a mediation involving 15 participants (in three groups of parties) in different countries to be conducted easily. Although Immediation was contacted less than a week before the mediation was held, with excellent technical support my Co-Mediator (in the United States) and I were able to run a mediation over three days seamlessly. There were no technical issues with the Immediation Platform. I recommend the platform for any complex mediation of this type.”
- The Hon Paul Heath QC, Barrister, Arbitrator and Mediator. Former High Court judge of New Zealand
“Sport NZ is proud to have partnered with Immediation to establish the first system wide Sport and Recreation Complaints and Mediation Service in Aotearoa, New Zealand. The quality of their team, commitment to innovation and belief in partnership made Immediation NZ an obvious choice for this new and complex service that our sector has needed for so long.”
- Jennah Wootten, General Manager, Sport NZ
“I used Immediation for the first time in an international mediation involving parties in New Zealand and Texas. The platform is fabulous – everyone that used it agrees that the system works really well. It’s an objective and supportive space to mediate digitally, and the cost of the platform is minimal. I recommend Immediation for any digital mediation or hearing.”
- Law Firm Director
‘’Great Clerks who are really helpful, enhancements "... " such as doc(ument) sharing and order creation are a big help. It's the closest that I can get to face to face.’’
“In Federal Court, the mediation process is supported by secure Immediation video conferences, bringing together participants, who can share their screens, attach documents, and exchange shared or private chat messages. Private conference rooms enable Mediators to convene with parties for confidential discussions, and more broadly Immediation has supported conferences having dozens of participants.’’
- Federal Court of Australia, NSW Registry

- Michael Tropea, General Counsel at AIA
