Mediation

Mediation is a process in which an independent and impartial mediator facilitates negotiation between the parties to assist them to resolve the issues in dispute. The mediator’s role is to guide the parties through the mediation process so that the issues in dispute can be defined, the relevant information produced and options explored without undue cost, delay or legalistic procedures. Once a dispute is resolved by mediation, it is usual for a legally binding and enforceable written agreement to be drawn up and signed by the parties setting out the details of their settlement, ideally before they leave the mediation meeting.
