Mediation is a dispute resolution process that involves a neutral and impartial third party, called a mediator, whose task is to improve and facilitate communication between the parties. The mediator does not make a binding decision resolving the dispute.
Frequently, lawsuits are expensive and time-consuming. Consequently, one or both parties involved in litigation are dissatisfied with the result. Mediation can be a suitable alternative to litigation because of its speedy process and lower costs. The judicial process can also lead to the termination of the business relationship between the parties, while mediation can also help to maintain a healthy relationship.
Mediation is voluntary, which means that it is up to the parties to decide whether to initiate or terminate the proceeding. The parties also have the right to choose a mediator.
Mediation is confidential, which means that the parties and the mediator are obligated to maintain confidentiality about what they learned or discovered during the proceedings. The mediator cannot also be called as a witness in a subsequent trial without the consent of the parties.
The mediator should be impartial and neutral. Impartiality means that the mediator is not associated with any of the parties, while neutrality implies that he does not have a particular attitude toward any of the parties due to his unbiased beliefs, views, and preferences.
The mediator makes it easier for the parties to determine their needs and interests and acts as a “catalyst” in the process. He mitigates conflicts and helps the parties in developing options for resolving the dispute. He is also a moderator of the negotiation process. He manages the process in such a way that it is carried out efficiently, enabling the parties to reach a consensus as soon as possible. If an agreement is reached, the mediator helps the parties draft the settlement so that it can be approved by the court.
The mediator’s reimbursements are specified in the Regulation of the Minister of Justice dated 20 June 2016 and titled on the amount of remuneration and reimbursable expenses of the mediator in civil proceedings (Journal of Laws of 2016, item 921). In cases involving property rights, as a general rule, the remuneration is 1% of the value of the dispute, not more than PLN 2,000 plus VAT.
The mediator’s reimbursements in extrajudicial mediation proceedings are to be agreed upon between the mediator and the parties. The cost is calculated based on the value of the dispute and the number of mediation sessions held.
