Why Mediation?

Mediation

  • is an additional option of dispute resolution. If it fails, the parties may still litigate.
  • also offers solutions to personal conflicts.
  • is forward-looking. Bygones are bygones and shall not be judged.
  • guarantees a tailor-made solution as it is being developed by the parties in view of their specific needs.
  • usually is quick and efficient since the parties control the process and its duration.
  • therefore is cost-effective. Billing is based on the time needed and not on the sum in dispute.
  • protects trade, business and other secrets as all parties are bound to confidentiality; even if mediation fails.
  • leaves room for communication and emotions.
  • leads to a greater acceptance of the solution as it is being developed by the parties themselves.
  • achieves a high degree of satisfaction.
