The advantages of mediation over other forms of dispute resolution are overwhelming...
Mediation allows disputants to fully communicate with one another in a constructive and positive environment, controlled by a neutral chairperson.
Mediation is a relatively quick process and gives disputants a shorter time frame in which to resolve disputes. Unlike a crowded Court list, mediation meetings are organised in accordance with the times and dates available to the parties and the appointed mediator.
Mediation is a relatively inexpensive process, without ongoing costs such as lawyer’s fees, filing fees, court fees, witness expenses, or Counsel’s fees.
Mediation meetings are held privately and conducted on a “without prejudice” basis; no newspaper reporting, court reporting, transcription or court records kept.
Mediation meetings are conducted without formal protocol or procedures; wider opportunities are available to discover solutions such as on- site meetings, expert opinions and frank discussions
At mediation, only the parties- not their lawyers, bosses, wives or judges- make the decision.
Survival of Relationship
Mediation assists disputants to maintain their existing relationship with one another. If a dispute is litigated, more often than not existing relationships are damaged beyond repair.
