The Purpose of Mediation
Mediation is a process whereby a neutral third party assists disputing parties reach a mutually acceptable decision which is fair and equitable to meet the needs of each party. During the mediation, process interviews are conducted with all parties where our mediators ask appropriate questions in order to establish rapport and clarify issues. The goal is to allow parties to understand each other’s perspective and create a positive and safe environment. This prepares parties for a successful mediation session.
Unlike a court, where there is only one winner and one loser, with little opportunity to create a settlement which meets everyone’s needs, the mediation process offers the parties the flexibility of fashioning their own creative resolution of the dispute. Mediation gives parties the control of whether the case will settle or not – not the lawyers, judges, or juries. If parties don’t settle, because it is a confidential process, nothing said in mediation can be used against a party in a lawsuit.
