Mediation is where a third party (a mediator) helps the parties to reach a resolution to their dispute. 

Advantages of mediation: 

  • voluntary
  • confidential
  • non-binding
  • proactive intervention of neutral third party
  • ascertains what your opponent really wants
  • free to leave at any time
  • can be arranged quickly, and
  • cheaper than proceeding to trial.

Disadvantages of mediation: 

  • Both parties must be willing to make it work, and t
  • here is still a cost implication to the parties.
