BENEFITS OF PRIVATE, INDEPENDENT, MEDIATION

 

Mediation is a flexible approach to resolving disputes. Parties communicate privately with a neutral who assists as they explore the disagreement which has them at odds.  As a neutral third party, the mediator facilitates communication between the parties to promote settlement, and offers an opportunity for self-determination by the parties.

 

Mediation allows parties an opportunity to settle matters privately.  Meetings can take place in the mediator's office or by other means that are most convenient for the parties.  In many cases, this can help resolve the issues and avoid an often long, expensive, and unpredictable court process.

 

The Minnesota Supreme Court has adopted rules encouraging or requiring mediation and arbitration of cases already in the courts. Parties can also choose to mediate or arbitrate controversies which have not been commenced in the courts.  Many other courts and government agencies also encourage mediation and arbitration.  These and other forms of alternative dispute resolution have a long tradition in legal systems and cultures.
