Mediation is an excellent form of dispute resolution, if you know how to use it…
Mediation is a form of assisted negotiation by a neutral third party, the mediator. Often, when people face a dispute, people get entrenched in positions, emotions and are reluctant to move forward.
Your mediator will listen to everyone involved, distil, and convey your points and help everyone move forward.
Mediation is not a legal process. You will not need to supply a folder of evidence or prove points to a judge. It is party-centric and empowers you to make the decisions and reach agreement, and not have these imposed by a judge or other decision maker. It is because of this that the success rates are so high, and people generally stick to what has been agreed.
In our experience, mediation is only successful where everyone acts in good faith to talk and attempt to move forward. When this happens, almost 90 per cent of matters settle, according to recent surveys.
Mediation can take place online or in person and over a few sessions or up to a whole day. There is some paperwork involved which includes an agreement to mediate, our terms of business, and the heads of terms of your agreement, which everyone will sign at the end of the process.
