Mediation is a process where parties have the opportunity to be a part of developing a solution which serves the interests of all involved. It is a resolution process whereby all parties participate in the outcome whereas arbitration or litigation leaves the outcome in someone else’s hands. Many times in arbitration or litigation, it is a perfect stranger who makes life-changing critical choices for the parties. Mediation puts the power of decision-making directly where it belongs–into the hands of those living in the situation in question. Mediation takes place in a confidential setting and parties can rely on mediator confidentiality and equality.
