Nowadays, people are increasingly choosing mediation over judicial proceedings. Mediation is the joint resolution of a dispute with the aid of a neutral third party, the mediator.

Mediation has a number of advantages. Firstly, it allows for far more creative solutions than judicial proceedings as mediation is not concerned with legal opinions, but with the interests of the parties involved. Furthermore, the procedure is faster and cheaper, and the relationship between the parties is not needlessly damaged. A joint solution is always a win/win situation.

Mediation costs, on average, substantially less than proceedings before a court. Depending on the nature of the dispute, mediation takes between 5 and 15 hours on average.
