Collaborative – As no individual in mediation can enforce anything on anybody, everybody is motivated to collaborate to solve the concerns and reach best contracts.
Managed – Each individual has total decision-making power and a veto over each and every provision of any mediated contract. Absolutely nothing can be imposed on you.
Confidential – Mediation is generally confidential, as you agree and want, be that by statute, agreement, rules of proof and/or privilege. Mediation conversations and all products developed for a mediation are usually not permissible in any subsequent court or other objected to proceeding, except for a completed and signed mediated contract. Your mediator is obligated to describe the degree of mediation confidentiality and exceptions to that confidentiality. The degree of confidentiality for any “caucus conferences” (meetings between the mediator and individual celebrations) ought to likewise be defined.
