Mediation is a process which allows dispute resolution without the need for complex, often expensive, and often long-winded court proceedings. It is a fast, inexpensive and effective method of settling any form of dispute or disagreement between parties.
It allows the full nature of the dispute to be addressed through a series of confidential meetings between the parties and the mediator. At no point in the process do the parties come together which means that all possible aspects of resolution can be discussed freely and in the sure and certain knowledge that the mediator will not pass details to the other party unless expressly instructed to do so.
This allows the parties to the dispute to reach their solution to their problem and conclude matters to the satisfaction of all involved rather than a court ruling which often will not satisfy the requirements of either party to the dispute.
