Immediation is a recipient of funding in the latest round of Liberal National Government’s Accelerating Commercialisation grants.

This funding will help Immediation to commercialise its online dispute resolution platform through pilot customer trials and the development of family law and workplace relations solutions.

Immediation is a private and confidential online dispute resolution platform, providing a low-cost, easy, secure, quick and highly efficient method of resolving commercial disputes as an alternative to long and expensive court processes. 

Immediation was conceived and designed in response to the problems encountered by ordinary businesses and individuals gaining access to justice at a reasonable price. The platform has been designed as an alternative to the current system, to enable access to a quick, commercial outcome with a fixed price. The idea is to resolve the dispute amicably, and move on, with relationships intact.

Immediation is currently finalising its national panel of highly qualified and experienced practitioners that will provide mediation, arbitration and determination services through the platform and expects to finalise its pilot customer trials in May 2019 and launch shortly thereafter.

Extension of platform to family law and workplace disputes

The Immediation team includes the service’s founder, Laura Keily, a barrister and ex-corporate lawyer and Claire Bibby, a high profile general counsel with 25+ years of experience in the corporate world. The grant has created an opportunity for the service to extend beyond its initial focus on commercial disputes to family law and workplaces. The grant amount is $300,000.

Family law innovator, Adieu Legal also a recipient in the grant program 

Evorce (now known as Adieu Legal) received  $353,320 from the grant program.

Adieu Legal was the winner of the 2018 ALPMA/LexisNexis Thought Leadership Awards. It is a collaborative divorce platform, combining artificial intelligence with family law experts to create a ‘consensus accelerator’, reaching property and financial settlements in a fraction of the traditional time.
