Mr. Panchu follows the evaluative style of mediation, working with parties intensively, focusing them on their interests, legal strengths and weaknesses, and alternatives to settlement as well as engaging with them in devising and refining options for settlement. While he can be facilitative, he has observed that in the Asian context evaluative mediation is what works best.  His standard mediation forms and agreements are available on request.

He advises courts, institutions and companies on creation of schemes and mechanisms for effective dispute resolution.

He trains mediators, especially for advanced courses.

He has presented several papers on mediation at international and national conferences and seminars in addition to writing articles and essays for the Economic & Political Weekly and The Hindu, among others.

Online consultations and conferences on request.
