What is Mediation

Mediation is an informal and confidential method of settlement of business conflicts with the participation of a third-party mediator – an experienced negotiator. He helps the parties to find a mutually acceptable solution in their dispute, contributes to the conflict settlement, compromise or mutual understanding. Mediation is usually the best alternative to legal proceedings.

There are no losers in the mediation process. I conduct negotiations based on the Harvard Win-Win negotiation strategy, which has no losers.

The mediator does not judge or advise, but simply helps the parties find ways to reconcile the dispute with the help of special psychological and negotiation skills and experience that they have as an experienced negotiator.

The mediator is not just a negotiator. This is a person who has completed special training, he has knowledge in law, psychology, and life experience. The mediator acts as a disinterested and neutral person in relation to all parties. He organizes the negotiation process, creates an opportunity for communication, helps participants listen and hear each other, and find the most mutually beneficial ways out of the current situation.

Advantages of Mediation

Mediation is a quick way to resolve disputes. Proceedings that may take months or years in court can be settled out of court in a few days or weeks.

The mediation process is confidential. While the courts are public and information about your business and personal affairs becomes publicly available, the mediation process takes place in a private and convenient place and time for the parties.

Mediation is cheaper than other forms of dispute settlement. The cost of conducting mediation negotiations starts from 200 rubles, depending on the duration of the procedure. While the minimum amount of state duty in the state economic court is 675 rubles, and for large claims -5 % of the amount of the claim, without taking into account the time and expenses for lawyers, attorneys, etc., which both parties incur.

Mediation makes it possible to maintain good relations and goodwill between the parties because it allows the parties to approach the dispute together and find a mutually acceptable result.

Where to start

To start the mediation procedure, the parties need to agree on this among themselves and sign an agreement with me on the use of mediation.Such an agreement can be signed both before and after recourse to the state economic court.

When choosing a mediator, you should build on the experience of those you trust. Consult with your friends and partners. It is also important to study the qualifications of a mediator and personally communicate with the mediator. Arrange a meeting with the mediator and ask him questions.
