Why Does the Mediation Process Work?

Mediation works primarily because most individuals want to avoid high court costs and significant delays when it comes to resolving their disputes. In many cases, mediation can be a more efficient method of resolving a dispute because it involves a skilled, impartial mediator whose primary focus is to seek common ground for a settlement. Both parties are given a more realistic view of their case and the results they would likely achieve, should it go to court. It is also a confidential process, typically held in a private office or meeting room without a public record made of the proceedings. This is also appealing for many, especially those in the public eye. If a settlement cannot be reached, anything discussed during the mediation process is ruled as inadmissible, should the parties end up taking the matter to court.

Benefits of Mediation

Disputes are resolved faster, saving time and money.
The process is informal and confidential.
It is an affordable alternative to trial.
It puts matters into one’s own hands.
It makes use of cooperative problem-solving.
It aims at crafting a solution that meets the needs of both parties.

Agreements reached at mediation are legally binding. If a party fails to comply with a signed agreement, the other party may bring a motion for judgment in accordance with the terms of the agreement.

Attendance at Mediation

The mediation may take place anywhere that the parties agree, for example:

Mediator’s office
Office of any party
Office of any of their lawyers
Court facilities

Depending on the complexity of the matter, mediation sessions can last multiple days. Both parties and their lawyers must attend the sessions. Each party must have authority to settle the case or have telephone access to anyone whose approval is required to settle. If a corporation or other organization is a claimant or defendant, it should be represented by an individual authorized to make a decision on its behalf.

What Makes a Good Mediator?

The mediator is a neutral third party who helps the parties find a solution that works for them. Unlike a judge, a mediator does not impose settlements. The mediator helps the parties communicate with each other to gain a better understanding of the interests of both parties and helps them communicate with each other in a constructive manner so they find a resolution based on mutual agreement.

An effective mediator listens to all parties, reconciles their differences, and leads the parties towards a settlement. At Brunet-McFadden Professional Corporation, we ensure that when the mediation is completed, all participants depart knowing that their dispute was handled with the utmost professionalism and integrity. The mediators at Brunet-McFadden Professional Corporation are experienced, know how to efficiently resolve differences, and are capable of mediating any dispute.

The Mediation Process

A mediator facilitates the dialogue between both parties. A formal mediation consists of 6 basic steps taken by both parties:

Introductory remarks
Stating the problems
Gathering information
Prioritizing the problems to solve
Negotiating, and creating possible solutions
Reaching an agreement

Mediation is an effective way to resolve a dispute when a qualified third-party is skilled in negotiation and more. A successful procedure of mediation involves at least 2 major techniques:


Both parties try to settle their conflict through discussion. The mediator needs to thoroughly understand the issues and make suggestions. Each party loses some battles and wins some others, but the mediator uses creativity, experience and perspective to ensure that both win the war. A good mediator helps the parties recognize the risks of continued conflict and possible litigation, and assists them in developing broader perspectives leading to an acceptable settlement. In the opinion of veteran mediators, establishing rapport is more important than employing specific mediation techniques and tactics.
