Mediation is a fast and direct way to resolve disputes. Whether there are two or more parties the conflict is resolved through dialogue and the goal is to reach a settlement which satisfies all parties involved.
Mediation is an effective way of resolving disputes with full confidentiality and out of court or arbitration.
A neutral and impartial mediator helps the parties to identify the conflict issues, discuss individual interests and needs and finally helps the parties to find solutions that suit the parties’ situation and comply with the their interests and needs.
The goal is to reach a mutually satisfactory settlement based on the parties’ interests and needs rather than legal standards only. Mediation does not only focus on the legal issues. You get the chance to speak up and decide the best way to resolve the conflict yourself instead of letting a judge make the decision.
