What is Mediation?

Mediation is a flexible and confidential process used to settle a dispute between two or more people, businesses or other organisations.


It involves appointing a mediator, who is an independent and impartial third person, to help the parties talk through the issues, negotiate, and come to a mutually agreeable solution. You can mediate before taking legal action or while legal action is ongoing.
