What is mediation?

Mediation is an effective method of resolving disputes between two or more parties where those parties can take control of the dispute and its outcome. The mediator, a neutral independent qualified professional, assists all the sides in negotiating a mutually agreeable settlement. 

Participation in mediation is voluntary and the process is private and confidential, it brings structure and importantly statistics show that 90% of mediations result in a settlement desired by each party to the dispute. 

Mediation takes place on a single day and we can arrange a mediation within 28 days of referral compared to the delays of months faced by court proceedings.

What will happen on the day?

The mediator will start the day by reminding each party of the ground rules, following which the process will be flexible responding to the needs of the parties present and the dispute in question. 

The mediator will spend time with the parties individually in their private rooms, known as caucus, gaining an understanding of their position and working with the parties to reach a resolution. This will include asking parties to look at the strengths and weaknesses of your position and to consider what a court and the other party is likely to say in response to your case. The mediator will work with the parties to consider possible solutions that work for your and will communicate offers to each party helping them understand what the offer means to them. 

The mediator may spend time directly with the lawyers, if they are present, to discuss points of legal dispute. This is again voluntary and will only take place where you agree. Remember that all meetings are confidential and no information will be shared with anyone, including the other party and the court without your express permission. 

Once an agreement is reached then the parties’ legal advisers will draw up an agreement reflecting the terms. If the parties are not represented then they will draw up an agreement between them to reflect the terms reached.
