Mediation is a voluntary process, where outcomes are only legally binding if later steps are taken to make them so. Nevertheless, like any process that is new to them, we know that many people are a bit wary about taking those first few steps.
Therefore, it’s good to know how the process starts. During the first session, the aim is to discuss the big picture and our lawyers seek to gain a general appreciation of where all sides stand in the matters to be mediated upon.
The first step is as simple as that; allowing those present to fully appreciate the process. This helps put clients at their ease, and then know how to move forward.
