If any dispute arises in connection with this agreement, directors or other senior representatives of each party with authority to settle the dispute will, within 10 working days of a written request from one party to the others, meet in a good faith effort to resolve the dispute.
If the dispute is not resolved at that meeting, the parties will attempt to settle it by mediation in accordance with the Centre for Effective Dispute Resolution (CEDR) Model Mediation Procedure. Unless otherwise agreed between the parties, the mediator will be nominated by CEDR. To initiate the mediation a party must give notice in writing (“ADR notice”) to the other parties to the dispute requesting a mediation. A copy of the request should be sent to CEDR Solve. The mediation will start not later than 20 working days after the date of the ADR notice.
No party may commence any court proceedings in relation to any dispute arising out of this Agreement until it has attempted to settle the dispute by mediation and either the mediation has terminated or one of the other parties has failed to participate in the mediation, provided that the right to issue proceedings is not prejudiced by a delay.
Nothing in this Agreement shall prevent any party seeking a preliminary injunction or other judicial relief at any time, if in its judgement such action is necessary to prevent irreparable damage.
