In an attempt to limit the amount of time and money that is spent on litigation, some business contracts may include clauses requiring that disputes be resolved through mediation. Mediation is often a favorable alternative to taking the matter to court because it gives the parties the opportunity to maintain some level of control over the outcome.
In a mediation, a neutral third party (the mediator) works with the parties to help them reach a mutually consensual solution that they both can support. While the mediator is often a lawyer, the mediator does not represent either party and will not offer legal advice at any time. Each party in the mediation, however, can have legal counsel present.
