Why mediate?

Mediation is the opportunity to resolve a dispute or a problem - or avert a potential problem - with the help of a neutral third-party (the mediator). You don’t have to involve a lawyer unless you want to and you don’t need to go to a court.

Most importantly, what you discuss and decide in mediation remains confidential.


 
Mediation
Court
Time
You control when the mediation takes place  
You decide how long it lasts (generally a day)  
The lawyers and the court system control when proceedings start
They control how long it lasts (months or years)
Money
You know how much it will cost in advance
You share the cost with the other party
The costs may add up quickly and end up being more than the amount in dispute
You may have to pay the costs of the other side
Lost opportunity cost
You can keep focused on your business and increasing profit
 
You and others in the business may spend countless hours tied up with the dispute and miss business opportunities
 
Control
You decide the outcome
 
The court decides the outcome
 
Confidentiality
You, the other party and the mediators sign an agreement to keep all discussions and decisions completely confidential to the extent permitted by law or public policy.
 
The public and the media are usually entitled to be in the court room to listen to the proceedings and the final decision
 
 "As an experienced litigation solicitor, this was my first occasion in utilising the process of mediation. I hope it will not be my last."       Paul Reid, Fleming & Reid, Glasgow solicitors
