According to a survey conducted by Dr. G.Y.C. Mok on litigation lawyers in 2009-2010, the success or settlement rate on purely facilitative mediation after the commencement of court proceedings is less than 12%. However, the empirical study showed that the settlement rate is much higher, between 38% to 67%, if the mediator is a senior or leading lawyer (using the expert advisory mediation model) or the mediator adopted a combination of Facilitative/Evaluative Mediationor Facilitative/Settlement Mediationmodels.

In a nutshell, one may therefore conclude that purely facilitative mediation is ineffective and should be discouraged on, for instance, commercial disputes after the start of litigation process, otherwise it may be a waste of valuable time and expense.
