Over ninety percent of lawsuits settle. Mediation can often result of a settlement of a legal dispute at the earlier stages of a lawsuit rather than before trial after much money and time has been expended.
In mediation practice, a neutral intermediary – the mediator – assists the parties to reach a mutually satisfactory settlement of their disputes. After settlement is reached, it can be recorded as finding and binding as an enforceable contract.
While mediation is efficient and cost-effective, it can also achieve collaboration and a sense of cooperation as well as resulting in substantial cost and time savings as well as avoidance of additional conflict between the parties.
