Mediation is a delicate process. It involves an independent person bringing the parties of a dispute together to help guide them to a resolution. The mediation process is confidential and quite often results in an outcome that would not be achieved through litigation. It gives the parties flexibility and avoids the uncertainties that litigation may involve.
