When you run into a dispute, it can be challenging to know where to start and where to turn. It can be easy to assume that justice will always prevail in the case of a dispute… but justice looks vastly different, depending on who you ask.
Courts and other traditional ways of dispute resolution can be costly, expensive and may not get you your desired outcome.
That’s where Mediation comes in. Mediation is the process of conflict and dispute resolution in a calm, and moderated space, with unbiased support. Everyone has a chance to explain their side of the story and make sure they are heard.
Each party has the opportunity to clarify their position and discuss what they want out of the resolution.
The mediator, in turn, is there to help support the process and ensure that both parties get the most out of the experience and ensure a fair and equitable resolution for everyone involved.
Unlike a lengthy, drawn out court case, you do not need to formally turn over evidence, take sworn statements and have a team of lawyers to back you up
There is less accusation, and more working towards an agreeable solution. This makes mediation especially helpful and useful when you want to preserve your business relationships.
The mediators involved are always neutral and there to help. They never have a vested interest in a specific outcome of the dispute, which allows them to remain non-biased at all times, and come to an agreement that reflects all interests, concerns and points of view.
Mediation also removes the need for legal representation (although it is optional), which also greatly reduces the cost involved.
As a result, mediation is typically:
- More likely to result in a favourable resolution for all parties
- Cheaper than other dispute resolution options
- Quicker and less drawn out
- More creative in its solutions
- Less complicated than taking your dispute to court
