Mediation is a private process where a neutral third person called a mediator helps the parties discuss and try to resolve the dispute.
Unlike the other legal processes, mediation allows and encourages the parties to look beyond the basic issues of the dispute itself and examine the other relevant considerations like time, costs and relationships. Parties may agree to compromise and are able to formulate any agreements that are acceptable to them. Mediation often achieves not only resolution of a dispute but also the possibility of restoration of personal and business relationships.
Mediation can be used to:
It's not unusual for the costs of the dispute resolution processes to exceed the value of the dispute, legal and court costs can be extortionate and the time involved for the parties in following the litigation route is often prohibitive. Mediation can offer a quicker and far more cost effective way of settling disputes.
And whilst its not guaranteed, mediation more often that not results in a settlement. A large majority of mediation reach a resolution within the day and many of those that don’t often settle shortly afterwards.
