WHAT IS MEDIATION ?
NEGOTIATION · FACILITATION · SOLUTIONS
Mediation is a non-judicial, dispute-resolution mechanism that offers parties to come to a mutually beneficial agreement to their conflict, disagreement, and dispute with the help of an impartial and accredited mediator.
Mediation avoids having to address a recourse before the court, which saves time, cost, stress, and the risk of a decision imposed by a court that fails to consider the interest and needs of all parties.
The mediator intervenes to help negotiate an agreement that caters to the needs and interests of all parties involved.
Mediation can be introduced at any time, before or during a judicial recourse, when a conflict, disagreement, difficulty, or dispute arises.
