Mediation involves the use of an independent, impartial third party (a mediator) whose role is to assist the parties in a dispute to work towards a negotiated outcome. In this process, it is the parties, not the mediator, who control the decision to settle and on what terms. Mediation is designed to be flexible and has the benefit of being confidential. It also has the advantage of not being constrained by issues such as jurisdiction or legal process.
We find that clients value being in control of the process and the outcome through making their own choices. They remain in the middle of the process and are not hamstrung by procedural rules and the limitations of the rules of evidence.
However, it is important to be guided through the process by an experienced lawyer who knows how to make the process work successfully.
