Using Mediation Effectively In Construction Disputes
Mediation is a form of alternative dispute resolution in which a neutral third party (the mediator) directs and facilitates discussion of disputed matters in an attempt to resolve disputes and avoid the necessity of trial. The mediator does not act as a judge or lawyer. He or she does not render a judgment, represent either party, provide legal advice or have an interest in the final outcome of the case.
Mediation can be an effective way for parties involved in a construction dispute to obtain a resolution to their case without the time and additional cost of protracted litigation. Parties that attend mediation can and should be represented by legal counsel to ensure the protection of their rights.
