CEDR's Annual Review 2006 is just out.

Highlights include;

1. CEDR arranges three mediations every single working day of the year - not a bad effort in this age of over hyped mediation stats
2. CEDR has a annual turnover of £4 million from dispute resolution provision and training services
3. CEDR had its 12,000th mediation referral in 2006 and mediated over 650 major cases
4. 284 new mediators were trained by CEDR in 2006 and over 2000 law
firms, corporations and government offices called on CEDR’s services during the year
5. Thirty new mediators were added to CEDR's panel in 2006

CEDR case numbers have climbed fairly consistently since 1997-


Big winners in 2006 were increases in property, employment, construction, partnership and "other" cases-


Does the future belong to increasingly global provider panels like CEDR and JAMS?... one hopes not.
