We work with Mediatori, because the mandatory pursuance of mediation as a way that lengthy and costly legal proceedings and judgements might be avoided, has many advantages. From the point of view of the courts, private mediation and conciliation processes offer significant relief from overloaded rolls, while those in dispute will be able to save large sums of money and have their issues dealt with very much quicker. Perhaps the greatest value in mediation, however, is that the process strives to achieve a win:win outcome, as opposed to a judgement which leaves a winner and a disappointed loser. The latter outcome is seldom satisfactory.
