BE SMART - UNDERSTAND THE
WHAT IS MEDIATION?
Mediation is a voluntary
dispute resolution process in which a neutral third person ( a
"Mediator") meets with the parties, and assists them in reaching
a settlement of their dispute. A mediator will work with both
parties to obtain a global resolution of all issues. Our
mediators are seasoned professionals with have conducted
mediations and participated in mediations to understand all
sides of the process.
HOW LONG WILL MEDIATION TAKE?
There is no set time on
how long mediation will take. Mediation is task oriented with a
goal of reaching agreement. This agreement may be reached in a
very short time in situations where mediating parties are
already at a very high level of agreement and are able to
specifically describe that agreement. In situations where there
are a number of "open issues" (either disputed issues or issues
that have not been well considered), the mediation will take a
bit longer. Often mediation is concluded in a single session. On
complex matters it may take multiple sessions
WHAT IS THE VALUE OF MEDIATION?
It is the most cost
effective method of resolving disputes and the least stressful
comparing to a Court trial. In addition to the financial and
emotional savings of mediation, participants are able to fashion
their own agreement which is sensitive and responsive to
perceived equities and desired outcomes. The result is that the
work product of mediation, the Memorandum of Understanding,
provides a comprehensive resolution in terms mediating parties
understand and believe in. This results in a commitment to the
agreement which has been shown to enhance future compliance by
providing a cooperative atmosphere for performance of the terms
WHAT ARE OUR CHANCES FOR SUCCESS IN MEDIATION?
A significant number
of parties reach comprehensive resolution, with the remaining
issues reaching at least some significant substantive resolution
WHAT IF WE DON'T REACH AGREEMENT?
In the event no
agreement is reached in mediation, other settlement options can
be explored. Even unsuccessful mediating parties often seem to
obtain substantial benefit from having had the opportunity to
fully communicate and by having given it their best effort prior
to recognizing that attorney negotiation or litigation may be
WHO PAYS FOR THE MEDIATION?
Responsibility for the
mediation fees needs to be decided between mediation
participants. The key, however, is that the parties themselves
agree upon the division of the fee in whatever way seems fairest
and most appropriate.
WHAT CAN I DO TO ENSURE A SUCCESSFUL MEDIATION?
Perhaps the most important thing any mediating party
can do to ensure a satisfying and successful mediation
experience is to prepare for the mediation discussions by
seeking clarity as to individual desired outcomes and perceived
standards of fairness. Being able to listen to the other party's
point of view, even when you don't agree with it, will allow you
to develop options that meet both of your needs. It is in the
ability to see the whole picture from both perspectives that a
mutually satisfying agreement.
