“Mediation: the process by which the participants, together with the assistance of a neutral person or persons, systematically isolate disputed issues in order to develop options, consider alternatives and reach a consensual agreement that will accommodate their needs” - Folberg & Taylor
Disputes can be costly, stressful and disruptive – both financially and emotionally. Mediation offers an effective, pragmatic and constructive process for resolving disputes and has a higher success rate than litigation. If you talk to people who have been engaged in a well-facilitated mediation, they usually report high satisfaction with the process and results.
