What is Mediation?

Mediation is a without prejudice non-binding dispute resolution process in which an independent third party (“neutral”) assists the parties to settle their differences but does not advise them of his/her own opinion as to the issues and merits of the dispute.

What are the advantages of Mediation?

  • Can be undertaken quickly.
  • Generally cheaper and less traumatic for parties than attending court and giving evidence - much less hostile and intimidating than a courtroom.
  • The disputing parties control the process and ultimately the outcome, which doesn’t happen if a case is decided by a Judge.
  • It is confidential. Nothing said during mediation can be used in later court proceedings and any agreement can be confidential rather than airing a dispute in a public court.
  • Mediation can clarify a dispute - by identifying and defining the issues to be resolved.
  • Parties can choose who the Mediator is, and a neutral mediator may be selected for their particular area of expertise.
  • Mediation offers savings in time and costs.

A mediation will normally last from half a day to a full day. The cost depends on the size of the claim.

It has successfully been used to resolve personal, commercial, property, employment, and business disputes of all types. There are very few disputes for which it is inappropriate.
