Mediations conducted in New Jersey are governed by The New Jersey Uniform Mediation Act (UMA).1 Recently, in the seminal decision Willingboro Mall Ltd v. 240/242 Franklin Avenue LLC, the New Jersey Supreme Court held that a settlement agreement must be in writing to be enforceable and the mediation-communication privilege may not be waived unless it is expressly waived by all parties to the mediation.2 This article aims to bring attention to enforcing international commercial mediated settlement agreements when New Jersey is the seat of the mediation. In order to gauge the value of mediation in a cross border context, consider that 36.7 billon dollars of international exports originated in New Jersey in 2013 representing more than 20,000 companies in international commerce;3 disputes will inevitably arise from such a large volume of commercial activity. Now, assume you are a lawyer recently retained by a corporate client to engage in a commercial mediation process in New Jersey where the opposing party is from a jurisdiction outside the United States. Although it may seem simple enough in principle, this commentary attempts to highlight certain aspects of a dispute that a practitioner should consider when involved in an international mediation proceeding prior to arbitration. For example, assume the parties agree to settlement terms which are thereafter formalized in a written agreement executed by the parties and the mediator in compliance with New Jersey law. However, following the mediation you wish to enforce the settlement agreement in a foreign jurisdiction. Unfortunately the agreement is a contract, and therefore its enforceability may depend upon the predilections, whims, and caprices of the national court system where enforcement is sought.
