Mediation When can mediation be used?
Mediation can be used at any stage in a dispute where the people involved feel that an independent person may help them avoid matters getting out-of-hand and thereby save time, stress and money.
What will mediation cost?
This will vary depending on the value of the dispute. However the the cost of appointing a mediator almost certainly represents a substantial saving as opposed to the cost of continuing to litigate and the mediators fees are usually shared 50/50 between the parties.
Where is the mediation located?
The mediation is arranged by the mediator at a location convenient to the parties. Either you or the other party may provide rooms or alternatively we can arrange neutral facilities for the meeting.
Will mediation work?
Experience shows that mediation has a high success rate. The mediator is there to help but it is up to the parties whether or not they reach agreement.
How long does mediation take?
This also depends on the complexity of the dispute and the number of parties involved. Most mediations do not last more than one day.
Mediation is a very flexible process and is ideally suited to multi-party disputes. By bringing all the parties together there is an opportunity to reach a mutually satisfactory settlement.
