Mediation

A sworn advocate Dana Rone is also a mediator and renders to clients mediation services. The mediation is world known method of settlement of disputes, in which a neutral third person – a mediator helps the disputants to settle their controversies. A mediator in contradiction to the court or arbitrations does not adopt a decision about settlement of case. Instead of that a mediator facilitates the disputants to settle their case. A process of mediation is voluntary and confidential. During the mediation the disputants are heard, their true wishes, interests, values and goals are clarified. A mediation can have joint and separate caucuses, depending on essence of particular dispute. In some cases not only one, but two co-mediators are recommended to have more objective view to the case. The practice and experience of US and the Great Britain proves that mediation instead of litigation is chosen by those persons – both, global corporations in billion worth projects and natural persons in seemingly minor cases – who recognize excessive duration, costliness of litigation and impossibility of affect the outcome of it. It is a mediation in which disputants can take charge of the process and to finish their controversies in the form of mutual agreement, to satisfy the needs of all involved parties. If the litigation is aimed to the event and analysis of the event in the past, then mediation calls to look into the future. The parties have all possibilities to decide what to do with the disputable event in the past and how to live further on in mutually beneficial conditions.
