Mediation is the intervention into a dispute or negotiation by an acceptable, neutral third party (who has no authoritative decision-making power), to assist contending parties in voluntarily reaching their own mutually beneficial agreement on the issues in dispute. Mediation is a good choice because it is generally less expensive, provides a more timely way of resolving disputes, has mutually satisfactory outcomes with a high rate of compliance, results in comprehensive and customized agreements, offers parties greater control and predictability over outcomes, and is confidential.
