For commercial disputes, a mediation agreement is signed by all parties prior to the commencement of the meeting.
The meetings with the mediator can be joint sessions (plenary) with all parties and/or separate single meeting(caucus) as considered appropriate by the mediator.
The parties present their own views, opinions and feelings.
The parties share and clarify information, gradually developing a clearer and broader picture of the dispute.
The parties move into problem-solving, talking about what they want to change, weighing options, and making decisions.
The parties make a written record what is agreed and signed by all parties.
