Process and Benefits of Mediation

Benefits of MediationBenefits of Mediation

The process of mediation is a guided negotiation, helping the parties to communicate with each other, exploring the issues which are of real importance to them, which often differ from their ‘rights’. The parties are encouraged to find ways to address their present and future needs, rather than dwelling upon who may have been right or wrong in the past.

Parties in mediation avoid the uncertainty and dissatisfaction often experienced in court or at arbitration where they have little choice but to accept the judgment made, which none of them may be happy with.

Everything said at the mediation is entirely confidential to the parties (unless specifically agreed otherwise) – unlike the potential publicity of court proceedings.

The mediation process is without prejudice, so that on the rare occasion that a settlement is not reached litigation may continue without the parties needing to worry about having ‘given away’ anything that the other could use in court.

Mediation is voluntary; any party may withdraw at any time.

The Mediation is arranged at a venue convenient to the parties, who each have their own room as well as a separate room for joint meetings.  The Mediator listens to everyone’s point of view, talks to the parties privately and together, guiding them towards a settlement.

Nothing is binding upon any party until an agreed settlement is reached. Once a settlement has been drawn up and signed it becomes an enforceable contract between the parties.

There are countless benefits of mediation. Get in touch now to discuss your case, and the ways you can benefit by resolving it through mediation.
