The Mediation Chambers

How Does Mediation Work?

Although the precise structure of a mediation will depend on the issue at hand, the spirit, aims and methods are often very similar.

Your mediator will work with you in an informal environment, exploring a dispute impartially, taking into account everyone’s objectives and suggesting ways in which the gaps can be bridged. They don’t dictate settlement terms and they won’t disclose unauthorised information either between parties or with any third party.

The point to remember is that mediation is a voluntary process - the parties themselves are always in control.

If a resolution is reached - and 85% of the time it is - the mediator will work to produce a binding legal agreement or a Memorandum of Understanding on which one may be based. If not, the mediator will identify points of difference and agreement as a basis for any further negotiation or action.

Whatever the nature of the dispute, we’ll supply you with detailed guidance on how the process will work on the day, what to expect and how best to prepare.
