Success of Mediation
Mediation is internationally recognised as a successful dispute resolution process, with statistic showing that up to 80% of mediated disputes are resolved.
In cases where the full dispute is not settled, the partial unsettled dispute may continue to litigation. This narrows the issues still in dispute and limits the costs involved in litigating the remaining issues in dispute.
An example of this will be where the parties in a motor vehicle accident agree on the damages / costs of repair, but cannot agree on who is to blame and in what portions. Only this aspect of the dispute will be referred to litigation.
