What is Mediation? How Can it help me and my business?- Source Mediation Forum Ireland
In a mediation procedure the Mediator is a neutral independent person who acts as a facilitator who helps the parties to reach a mutually satisfactory settlement of their dispute. Any settlement terms reached can be signed and recorded in an enforceable contract. Mediation is an efficient and cost-effective way of achieving a fair outcome while preserving, and at times even enhancing, the relationship, business and personal, of the parties.
