Mediation, alongside arbitration, is a form of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR), which seeks to provide an out of court settlement for disputes between parties. Unlike arbitration, mediators do not pronounce a binding legal resolution, but rather attempt to mediate between parties and arrive at a negotiated settlement.
While mediation has been around for a long time, it is really only in the last decade that it has become a commonplace procedure for the resolution of commercial disputes. Although it is still, generally speaking, a consensual process, and parties cannot be forced into it, it is always a wise option to consider. This is for two reasons: (1.) mediation is usually a very effective way of settling a dispute; and (2.) in recent years, courts have imposed costs penalties on parties who, even if successful at trial, have unreasonably refused to mediate.
For mediation to be fully effective, parties must understand one another completely, which can be difficult if there are language barriers. At TJC Global, we offer interpreters with extensive interpreting experience and an in-depth knowledge of legal terminology, protocol and culture. We provide individually tailored interpreting services in order to cater for mediatory conferences of all natures and all contexts. It is not uncommon for our legal interpreters to possess a legal background themselves; and this, coupled with our own experience and expertise, ensures a satisfactory solution for all parties concerned.
