Why mediation?

  • Mediation is pragmatic and both cost- and time efficient.
  • Business-like solutions by the parties themselves, instead of legal adjudication.
  • Agreements reached by the parties are binding.
  • The mediator helps to separate the emotional from the legal and commercial aspects. 
  • Mediation is interest based. What is it really about?
  • Mediation concentrates on the future, not on the past.
  • The mediator speaks confidentially with each party separately and then may see opportunities for a settlement.
  • Avoidance of further escalation .
  • If ending of a business relationship is unavoidable, that can be done carefully and respectfully;
  • When parties do not reach agreement, the path to court proceedings or arbitration remains open.
