Mediation is a form of alternative dispute resolution in which the mediator helps the parties to find their own solution to a dispute. This opens up possibilities for settling disputes beyond the remedies which might be available to a court. A solution which the parties have found for themselves, with the mediator’s help, may well be more satisfactory to parties.
At a time when litigation costs are rising – the fees charged by courts for taking action, lodging documents and holding hearings, as well as the fees charged by lawyers – parties may welcome the opportunity to explore ways of settling their disputes.
