Mediation is often preferred to court proceedings because it allows the parties to resolve their conflicts in a private setting efficiently, quickly and without the need for external resources, by exploring and creating solutions on their own (with the help of a mediator). In early stages, mediation techniques may prevent escalation into real disputes.
