Mediation is an innovative procedure which facilitates achieving business friendly solutions in a time and cost-effective manner.
Advantages of Mediation:
- Decision making : remains on the parties in the dispute while the mediator facilitates the dialogue and provides a third party neutral perspective
- Scope :
– can be far beyond the legal dispute,
– appropriate for disputes where legal terms preclude the option to file a claim,
– appropriate for spheres where the development of the regulated relationships overrides the legal development.
- Forward thinking in Mediation:
Mediation is not about who is right or wrong, the aim is to find a solution to live with. All other procedures are past orientated even though we cannot change the past, we can only define the future.
- Balanced Agreement:
The presence of the mediator assures that the true interests of the parties will be uncovered and will be further balanced in the aim to achieve a mutually beneficial solution. Unlike ordinary negotiations where there is a battle of interests in mediation the mediator ascertains that the balance is maintained which guarantees that the agreement will last.
- Time and Money
Cost-effective and time effective since solution can be achieved in a couple of days and if necessary the agreement can be approved by the court;
- Selection of Lawyers and Authorship of the Final Agreement
In mediation the lawyers selected by the parties draft the final document, unlike other procedures where third party imposes a decision.
In mediation risk of losing is completely mitigated since the procedure offers a Win-Win solution. There is no risk to lose a case.
