It is simply this: the choice of a respected other to help parties meet in a confidential setting to listen to each other and reach an outcome that is principled, smart, and sustainable, for them at that time.
A respected, objective third party can help parties avoid the biases and prejudices that plague and often defeat positional settlement negotiations.
Mediation is the most flexible dispute resolution method. With the assistance of a mediator, parties are free to craft any solution that contract law will allow.
“An ounce of mediation is worth a pound of arbitration and a ton of litigation!”
