SETTLEMENT CONFERENCES

RELIABLE PATHWAYS TO RESOLVING DISPUTES

MEDIATION WORKS FOR ALL KINDS OF CONFLICT

Most simply put, mediation is a conference structured to help people end a conflict. Over the last 40 years, mediation has proven useful in helping to resolve most kinds of disputes. Quite commonly, mediation is used to help people and businesses involved in litigation avoid trial through settlement. Because of mediation, civil matters like employment or contract disputes and personal injury matters are statistically more likely to reach a settlement than to require a trial to decide the outcome of a dispute.  This also applies to people undergoing a divorce, or engaging in other family matters like administering an estate.

For the most part, a mediation conference consists of:

  • All parties to the dispute meeting with the mediator separately on a date set for the conference
  • Everyone involved provides the mediator with their view of the dispute
  • The mediator helps find common ground upon which everyone can agree
  • Building on that common agreement, the mediator helps everyone appreciate the advantages of being in agreement and putting it in writing
  • Mediation is private
  • Mediation is only binding upon the execution of a settlement agreement
