HOW DOES IT WORK?
Where disputes have led to a breakdown of communication between parties, mediation is a ‘bridge building’, or ‘bridge restoring’, process. The mediator allows disputing parties to communicate with each in a safe and neutral environment and to work towards a jointly agreed solution to their disagreement.
It is an informal and entirely voluntary process allowing parties to reach flexible settlements in a fraction of the time and at a fraction of the cost (in both money and emotion) to court litigation. In mediation, no settlement is imposed upon you – you, and the other party, will be guided and assisted to resolve your dispute
