Procedure

The mediation procedure is determined by its structure:

1. Agreement

First of all, the parties need to decide whether they consider mediation the right option. Then the terms of cooperation are defined in an agreement.

2. Presentation of issues

Each party is given the opportunity to state its case. The mediator draws up a list of all issues requiring resolution.

3. Consideration of interests

Under the guidance of the mediator, the parties develop proposals for a resolution of all issues considering all interests involved.

4. Solution options

On this basis, the parties evaluate those solutions they consider to be fair and appropriate.

5. Settlement agreement

The proposals are recorded in a document and signed by all parties. They now become legally binding.
