Sometimes legal action is unavoidable or necessary. However, mediation is often a good alternative way to resolve conflicts out of court. This is certainly the case when the parties to a dispute want to continue to cooperate afterwards.
The LM&DS mediators will strive to guide the parties towards a solution that they arrive at themselves.
The main advantages of mediation are clear:
At an initial meeting, the mediator explains how the process will work. You will also sign a mediation protocol that clearly sets out the engagements and rules.
Each party will then be given the opportunity to express their point of view and the mediator will work to ensure that both parties clearly understand each other's positions.
Further communication between the parties will also be facilitated and efforts will be made to find a solution on which they can both agree.
