Alternative Dispute Resolution

Mediation is a voluntary, informal, structured process in which an impartial third party, called a mediator, helps disputing parties to generate and evaluate options of reaching a mutually acceptable agreement.

A mediator does not have the power to impose an agreement on the parties. Mediation is strictly voluntary and all contents and subsequent outcomes are confidential.
