John Amabile, Shalanna Pirtle, and Shayla Wright wrote an article in the Daily Report on how "Georgia is now positioned to become businesses’ favorite state in the U.S. for international mediation, as well as the favorite state in the Southeast for domestic or international mediation."
"That positioning is the result of the Georgia Uniform Mediation Act (Senate Bill 234), which went into effect July 1," they wrote. "It made Georgia the first state to incorporate into its own laws the United Nations’ Model Law on International Commercial Mediation and International Settlement Agreements Resulting from Mediation, which the UN Commission on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL) amended in late 2018."
"The law also made Georgia the first state in the Southeast to adopt the Uniform Mediation Act (and the certainty and protections it provides)," they continued. "Georgia is the 13th state across the country to take that step."
