Avoiding protracted litigation
Through pre-court assessments, we want to keep parties from unnecessarily going to court, when the outcome could already precisely be figured out beforehand. Result Mediation utilises an expert who is impartial. Based on the input from the two parties’ lawyers, this expert analyses the probabilities. With this pre-court assessment, the decision to litigate or settle can be taken far more rationally.
Many of the pre-court assessments are done by current or former judges. They speak with both parties and explain their perspective on the situation in light of their knowledge and experience. The former judge weighs both sides’ arguments and leads the parties through his/her findings. The former judge won’t render a judgment, but can make clear what he/she expects would happen in court. With such knowledge, the parties can formulate a solution which is good for them and which they know will not force them to waive any rights.
