What is Mediation?


In a nutshell, mediation is a meeting hosted by a neutral third party, a mediator, who acts impartially and facilitates parties to a dispute to communicate in a bid to help them settle the dispute amicably. Mediation is a flexible process which is voluntary. In addition to save both time and money, the whole process is strictly confidential. Most importantly, it helps parties to maintain relationship.

If a settlement can be reached through mediation, the agreed settlement terms will be put in writing to become a mediation agreement. The enforceability of which is protected by the law. In other words, it is highly enforceable in a jurisdiction where the mediation agreement is concluded.
