Partaking in mediation is voluntary and the whole process is private and confidential, it brings effective structure that ordinary negotiation may be absent of. The decision to settle and the terms of any agreement rests solely with the parties themselves, not the mediator. The majority of administered mediations tend to settle on the day or shortly thereafter which makes it an attractive alternative to drawn out litigation, whilst reducing your legal costs and the stress associated with taking a dispute to trial.
