When legal disputes arise, a courtroom is not always the best place to resolve them. Depending on the nature of the matter at hand, it may be beneficial, more cost-effective and more efficient to explore other options, including mediation.
During mediation, the parties discuss their dispute with a specially trained and neutral third party, the mediator, who assists the parties in coming to a mutually agreeable solution. Agreements reached in mediation are legally binding.
Where appropriate, mediation is beneficial for a number of reasons:
In this process, cases are often referred to mediation early in the litigation process. This is intended to provide the parties with an opportunity to explore settlement options and to hopefully resolve the dispute without the matter having to go to trial.
