“This article has been produced by an independent contributor and does not reflect the views and opinions of the Immediation team or the brand as a whole.”

Mediation is the process of resolving disputes out of court, in a controlled setting, with a secondary, non-bias person helping facilitate the process. 

Mediation can be used in almost every scenario, from family matters, to business disputes. It is a broad and versatile process that is a popular alternative to court cases, litigation, and other dispute resolution methods.

In addition, it is becoming easier than ever to access mediation online, which makes it simpler and more accessible than ever.

There are several benefits of mediation. Mediation is a practical solution that is usually quite quick. It is usually also quite cost effective and does not take the same length of time as a court case. There is also more emphasis on an effective resolution that is fair to both parties, and less focus on passing judgement on the parties in question.

It is a collaborative process and is also fantastic for assisting with the endurance of business relationships and subsequent issues.

In addition, it is a fair process that is nonbiased, which goes a long way to increase the validity of the outcome and enhance the communication and future collaboration. It’s also less stressful than litigation, as it is quicker and less time consuming for everyone involved.

With equal opportunity to present information and discuss the situation, it empowers each party to have a genuine discussion and lay everything on the table. Without the need for legal representation, it is also a lot more accessible for the average person, or business owner.

Plus, confidentiality is always a huge focus when it comes to mediation, and you can rest assured that your business will not have its name slandered.

Whether you have a small dispute brewing, or a larger one you know is on its way… investing in mediation is a fantastic way to ensure you do everything you can to properly minimise the damage, financial costs and struggles encountered along the process of dispute resolution.
