Mediation Services Law & Lawyers

Mediation is an alternative way of resolving disputes or claims. It provides parties with an opportunity to negotiate a mutually agreeable resolution to a dispute rather than having to resort to court adjudication. The mediation is conducted by a neutral third party called a ‘mediator’ who seeks to identify the parties’ interests (rather than their legal rights) and to bring them to a consent settlement that will accommodate those interests. The mediator is neutral and does not decide which party is right or wrong or tell you what to do.

The mediator facilitates communications, promotes understanding, focuses the parties on their interests and seeks creative solutions to problems that enable the parties to reach their own agreements.

The Advantages of Mediation:

(1) Lower Costs and More Flexible Results

In most cases, a successful resolution through mediation means all parties save costs. You also have the opportunity to reach more flexible solutions to suit your needs.

(2) Speedier Resolution of a Dispute

Mediation is usually quick - helping you to get an early resolution before things get out of hand.

(3) Greater Control over Outcome

Mediation gives you more control over the process and the outcome. This means that the agreement is more likely to be honoured.

(4) Privacy and Confidentiality

The mediation is confidential and any agreement can also be kept confidential by agreement.

Mediation is becoming more and more popular in resolving disputes.

Mediation can be particularly helpful in resolving:

  • employment disputes,
  • all types of civil disputes
  • family law matters and disputes
  • personal injury claims and
  • commercial disputes.

The reality is often that no party in a dispute really wants to go to court, which is increasingly thought to be inflexible, uncertain and costly.

An answer is to involve the disputing parties in a process which is facilitated by a neutral third party, and which enables those parties to reach their own terms of settlement. This process is called mediation.

When should mediation be considered?

Because it is likely to be quicker and more cost-effective than the more formal processes of arbitration or litigation, mediation should be considered as early as possible after a dispute has arisen. It is particularly appropriate where a dispute involves complex issues and/or multiple parties.

Mediation can be implemented prior to, or in conjunction with, other forms of dispute resolution such as arbitration or court proceedings. While the parties must agree to participate in a mediation, that can be achieved by way of separate agreement or by a dispute resolution clause existing within a contract between the parties. Where privacy and confidentiality are important, mediation enables parties to preserve these rights without public disclosure. This often leads to more satisfactory outcomes for both parties.

In most cases, an early resolution through mediation means that all parties save costs. Mediation also allows you to reach more flexible solutions in a non-threatening environment. It is free of legalistic language and can provide solutions that better suit each parties’ needs. An example of this could be that if your matter involved faulty work and a claim for monies to have the work corrected, possible outcomes may be:

  • an agreed adjournment to enable work to be carried out by either or both parties to assist with the resolution of the matter. In the event that the work is performed to the satisfaction of parties, the parties may not have to attend at the next hearing with the matter then considered to be settled;
  • binding agreements endorsed by a court that are enforceable in a court should either or both parties not comply with the agreement;
  • agreement between parties for the payment of an amount of money by one of the parties in full and final satisfaction of the matter, with the payment of the sum of money being within a time frame agreed between the parties.
  • Mediation allows for parties to reach agreed settlements with solutions of a wide and varied nature depending on the proceedings.
Speedier Resolution of Claims

Mediation is usually quick - helping you to get an early resolution before things get out of hand. At the very least, mediation should assist in defining the issues that need to be resolved should the matter proceed to the next step and eventually trial.

Greater Control of Outcome

You have more control over the process and outcome. This means that the agreement is more likely to be honoured.

Privacy and Confidentiality

The mediation is confidential and any agreement can also be kept confidential by agreement.

What happens after mediation?

Should mediation be successful, the result can be recorded in a number of ways:

  • a judgment for a sum of money agreed upon by the parties;
  • an agreement can be recorded;
  • case adjourned while the parties carry out what they have agreed to do;
  • case can be dismissed;
  • a combination of the above alternatives.
Mediation has the following advantages:

Speedy

There can be little more damaging and socially destructive than protracted litigation - it terminates businesses, destroys marriages, and damages health. A mediation can be set up in a matter of weeks, if not days. It thereby avoids the many undesirable consequences of protracted litigation, and prevents the inevitable drain on costs and resources.

Parties retain control over the outcome

In litigation, parties relinquish control of their dispute: the lawyers and the Courts control the procedure, the level of disclosure, the evidence to be given, and the Judge has exclusive control of the outcome. In mediation the parties retain full control of the entirety of their dispute, allowing them to reject settlements with which they do not agree, and enabling them to reach more creative settlements or just ‘good enough’ settlements with which each party can readily live.

Informal

The mediation process is entirely informal, with no rules of law or procedure - other than confidentiality - and consequently parties find it considerably less stressful than going to court. Parties are unfettered in what they can say, and who they may bring to the mediation, and what documents they wish to produce or disclose.

Preserves relationships

Parties who end up in court, with a winner and a loser, will rarely be able to continue any commercial, contractual or other relationship. Mediation on the other hand, allows parties to reach settlements with which they are both content, thereby enabling them to continue with pre-existing business or other relationships.

Preserves privacy

Litigation often attracts unwanted publicity, with parties obliged to ‘wash their dirty linen in public’. Mediation is totally confidential with each party retaining complete control over whether and what matters can be revealed. Confidentiality clauses are also frequently included in settlement agreements.

Diminishes imbalances of power

Parties often feel overwhelmed when fighting large corporations - at mediation they are simply individuals around the table, and an effective mediator can protect parties against such power imbalances.

Therapeutic

It allows the parties their day in court more effectively than by going to court itself by allowing each person in dispute to be truly 'heard', to have their full and frank say to the mediator as well as to the other side in a 'safe' environment. It also facilitates apologies to be given or explanations made - which is often what parties really want.

Alternative dispute resolution (ADR)

Alternative dispute resolution (ADR) includes dispute resolution processes and techniques that act as a means for disagreeing parties to come to an agreement short of litigation. ADR basically is an alternative to a formal court hearing or litigation. It is a collective term for the ways that parties can settle disputes, with (or without) the help of a third party. ADR is ways and methods of resolving disputes outside the judicial process (formal litigation – court). ADR is more efficient and effective than the courts in providing justice.

ADR is generally classified into at least four types: negotiation, mediation, collaborative law, and arbitration. (Sometimes a fifth type, conciliation, is included as well, but for present purposes it can be regarded as a form of mediation.
