Mediation provides an opportunity for the parties to seek a solution to an issue on a ‘without prejudice’ basis. The parties retain control. This is a voluntary process and it does not compromise the rights of the parties in any way: one or other of them can terminate the mediation process at any stage, they can later attempt mediation again, or they can proceed to court. Mediation is usually quicker and cheaper than court proceedings and can lead to a formal binding agreement.
