CIVIL AND COMMERCIAL MEDIATION

Business Lawyer Montreal

Mediation is a method of amicable dispute resolution. It is also a means of preventing disputes and involves the active participation of the parties in the entire process.

Generally speaking, mediation is a negotiation between the opposing parties conducted by a neutral and impartial mediator. The mediator’s role is to facilitate the achievement of a realistic result that is accepted by the parties. The mediator does not impose a solution or provide legal advice on points of law relating to the dispute. His or her role is limited to guiding the parties through an elaborate process towards a solution that the parties themselves will choose. Through his or her mediation techniques, the mediator will “Rationalize” the dispute in order to reach common ground and reconcile the parties’ points of view regarding the identification of common interests and finding an appropriate “Solution”.

Mediation is by far the preferred process for citizens seeking speed, efficiency and looking to save time and energy.

Parties may seek the services of a mediator as soon as they suspect a risk of litigation and have reasonably inquired about the points of fact and law related to the case.

The mediation process may make use of information and communication technologies where the parties are geographically distant from each other or from the mediator, and cannot easily travel to the mediator’s premises to physically participate in a mediation session.
