Mediation is a productive process, a process whose premise is that no party will get exactly what they want, but each will compromise to reach a mutually agreed upon resolution. I hear attorneys say that a good settlement is where everyone comes out unhappy. This sentiment is not true. While some buyer’s remorse on both sides is normal, generally I have found that the parties are grateful that the dispute has been resolved. Much of this relies on the mediator’s ability to help the parties change their negotiating position and accept a compromise without losing face. Making the best use of your mediator’s abilities and time at every stage of the proceeding is extremely important in attempting to reach resolution.
