What is mediation?

Mediation is a process where two parties who have a dispute which they are litigating or are about to litigate decide to go to a neutral third party who tries to bring the parties together and settle the case either before the end of the litigation or even before litigation commences. The mediator does not have authority to bind either party. His job is really to see if he can probe the weaknesses and strengths of each side’s position and convince them that settlement is the better option than litigation.
