There are many benefits to mediation, including:
The mediation process is flexible, but the following format will usually be followed:
Prior to the Mediation
On the Day of Mediation
The opening joint session
Private individual sessions
Closing joint session
After the mediation
The most suitable type of mediation will depend on the circumstances of the case including the value, the location of the parties, and the complexities.
This was historically by far the most common type of mediation, where everyone would meet together at one location before splitting off into separate meetings.
Using an online platform, mediations can be conducted in much the same way as in-person, and this is how the vast majority of mediations have happened over the past year.
Parties can come together at the start, and be split into separate virtual rooms so that private discussions can be had.
Online document sharing is also possible.
For simple or small value cases, a telephone mediation may be suitable. Again, a joint call where all parties join at the start can happen, and then the mediation can progress as one group or with separate calls between the mediator and the parties.
