When dealing with any kind of dispute you may, unfortunately, find that you are at a deadlock and no further negotiation can be agreed. In such a situation, mediation is an excellent starting point to reaching a mutually beneficial decision. Mediation can be arranged quickly and it is much more cost effective than proceeding to issue expensive legal proceedings. It is important to remember that mediation is conducted on a without prejudice basis and therefore most people do not have anything to lose by giving it a go. It should not be considered as a sign of weakness but as an opportunity for reaching a decision.
How does mediation work?
Nobody can advise you at the outset how many mediation sessions will be required as this specific to each individual case. However, in the first meeting, the number and depth of the issues will become clear and any necessary further mediation sessions can be discussed during the meeting. Funding can also be discussed at the initial meeting. After introductions, generally, the mediator will allow each party to tell their side of the story uninterrupted. The mediator will then enter into a discussion asking open-ended questions and will try to find goals which both parties strive to achieve. The mediator will try to ascertain the problems between the parties and will look to agreeing on a sensible way forward.
