Mediation is a form of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) for resolving disputes between two or more parties. A mediator is a neutral third party whose job is to assist parties in negotiating their own settlement to a given dispute. Unlike arbitration, the outcome of mediation is determined by agreement of the parties. The mediator is in charge of the process, but the parties determine the content of what will be mediated. Mediation has a structure, timetable and dynamics that “ordinary” negotiation lacks. The process is private and confidential. The presence of a mediator is the key distinguishing feature of the process. There may be no obligation to go to mediation. Any settlement agreement signed by the parties to a dispute is binding. Different mediation rules and processes apply to different jurisdictions, and this is why it is important to have experienced representation.
