Mediation and Alternative Dispute Resolution

Unlike negotiations, where attorneys for the parties try to procure settlement, mediation is led by a third-party neutral. The mediator does not represent either party but rather facilitates communication and agreement between the parties, often over the course of various mediation sessions. In some cases, lawyers may be present to assist in the mediation or it may strictly involve the parties.
