What is mediation?
Mediation is a voluntary, impartial, confidential, informal, without-prejudice environment where parties attempt to reach consensus with the aid of a mediator.
The focus is on accommodating the needs and interests of the parties in a private, flexible manner, where parties determine the outcome.
The key benefits of mediation over litigation are that settlement is reached sooner, with less stress and much less cost. Furthermore, mediation allows for various agreements that a Court could not impose, for example a simple apology, or an agreement to rectify the problem.
