Our firm offers clients the option of mediation in civil disputes.
Our firm employs a lawyer with mediation training provided by the Finnish Bar Association. Mediation is alternative dispute resolution method. As it is conducted outside court, it is often the less expensive way to resolve disputes. In mediation, a neutral third party, the mediator, guides the parties to the dispute towards an amicable settlement. Mediation is a voluntary and confidential method of dispute resolution in cases amenable to settlement, for example disputes involving commercial or employment relationships.
The mediator is not empowered to issue orders or decisions binding on the parties. Mediation nonetheless helps safeguard the continuity of interpersonal and commercial relationships, in addition to which its costs are lesser than those of court proceedings or arbitration. Successful mediation ends in a settlement agreement accepted by all parties.
