What is Mediation?

Mediation as defined in law, is a form of alternative dispute resolution (ADR), a way of resolving disputes between two or more parties with the assistance of a mediator (an independent and neutral party) to negotiate a settlement and draw up a mediation agreement.

Benefits of Mediation

  1. Less daunting than appearing in Court before a judge.
  2. Cheaper; cuts out the cost of court and admin fees as well as fees for your legal counsel.
  3. Less stressful; involves only the parties concerned and the mediator and sessions can take place at a mutually agreed location.
  4. Can be quicker depending on the parties ability to negotiate and reach a settlement.
  5. Mediations are completely confidential and the information discussed within them cannot be used in Court or in any other legal action issued at a later date.
