What is Mediation?
Not all significant legal conflicts necessarily end up in litigation. Mediation is an alternative dispute resolution (ADR) that can be a cost-effective, efficient way to resolve a matter in a structured but flexible and non-adversarial setting. The process involves a neutral third party (the mediator) who is tasked with helping to facilitate a resolution between two or more parties involved in a legal dispute. Essentially, these individuals help two or more disputing parties reach a mutually agreed upon resolution to their conflict. Broadly speaking, the goal of mediation is to promote understanding, cooperation, and communication between the parties and help them reach a satisfactory resolution.
Know the Benefits of Mediating a Legal Dispute
Mediation is a form of ADR that can provide benefits across a wide range of legal conflicts—from real estate disputes and construction disputes to partnership and shareholder disputes. Some of the potential advantages of mediating a legal dispute include the following:
- Save Money: Mediation is often less expensive than traditional litigation. It can reduce certain legal fees and other court costs. Mediation can be part of the litigation process.
- Save Time: Mediation can be a faster way to resolve disputes as it can avoid much of the time-consuming process of court proceedings.
- Preserve Relationships: Mediation can help preserve relationships between the disputing parties as it focuses on finding mutually agreeable solutions. It can be especially effective for resolving disputes between parties that want to maintain continued commercial relations.
