A quick guide to Alternative Dispute Resolution: Mediation

Mediation is a typical ADR process which involves the parties in a dispute heard before a neutral third party, such as a mediator, who shall guide and expedite negotiations between parties to, hopefully, reach an agreement to settle the dispute. A significant role of the mediator is that he or she will not force any of the parties to come to an agreement; this agreement shall be a voluntary one.

Taking Legal Action? Who Has To Pay And How Much?

Generally, when a party wins a civil suit, the other party may be ordered to pay a sum to cover legal fees incurred by the successful party.

This is known as party-and-party costs. When the court makes an order for party-and-party costs, one party is required to pay a certain amount to the other party.

However, although the winning party is able to get party-and-party costs, this amount usually does not cover the full legal costs the successful party has to incur.
