What is mediation?

It is a private and confidential process that allows all parties in a dispute to control over the outcome. Information and conversations cannot be shared outside the mediation or used in court. It is voluntary and all parties must agree to mediate. Courts may impose cost sanctions if a party refuse. The decision makers must have authority to settle and there is no settlement until an agreement is signed by all parties.

The Mediator is an intermediary, impartial  and guides the process. The mediator provides no opinion on the merits or offers legal advice.

When to mediate?

Mediation can take place at any time in a dispute but is encouraged to be early to avoid entrenchment of positions and before incurring or exposure to escalating legal costs. For civil and commercial disputes, the right time is determined by balancing the investigation expert and legal cost against litigation risk. Whereas, a community dispute an early resolution is essential to avoid increasing animosity between the parties.

Civil courts expect parties to attempt to settle in mediation before a hearing in front of the judge.

Whats areas of disputes can be mediated?
