Our Mediation Service
Mediation is another alternative dispute resolution. to traditional court litigation, we provide an effective means of resolving disputes cooperatively.
We mediate for the legal rights and obligations relating to the dispute and the parties.
Keeping the law in mind, our mediators can at the same time assist individuals in negotiating a fair settlement. The parties can also benefit from the lawyer’s skills in drafting the settlement agreement that is reached between them.
We assist parties in facilitating conversation; and from there, we can recognize the parties’ main interests, beliefs, anxieties, and hopes. This leads to finding common ground and identifying key areas of dispute. Only then can we work effectively towards a solution. Our focus is to steer clear of bottom lines and help the clients harmonize their future affairs.
One of the greatest advantages of mediation is that it saves our clients time and money. While litigation matters can take many months and sometimes years, mediation can be handled very quickly with little delay. This is because the mediator is often someone who has expert knowledge in the subject matter of the dispute.
Once an agreement is reached in mediation, it can be formalized into a legal settlement, without the need to attend Court. In addition, it can be filed in the Court, and given the same weight and treatment as a Judge’s Court order. Our Mediation team is aware of total confidentiality before and after finishing the whole process.
