What are the Advantages of Mediation?


  • reduces the time and costs of resolving a dispute
  • provides all the parties with an opportunity to express their views and hear the other parties’ views in a brief and efficient manner
  • allows the parties to have greater control over the procedure to be followed and the timings involved as compared with arbitration or litigation
  • preserves the relationships of the parties involved. This is very important for parties with ongoing relationships.
  • is confidential. The mediation process is private and any documents prepared or statements made for the mediation process are not able to be used as evidence in any subsequent litigation.
  • provides the opportunity for the parties to speak to the mediator in private, away from the other parties involved in the dispute so that confidential information can be disclosed to the mediator (such as desired dollar amounts for settlement without emotion).
