  3. Preparation:

    Even before the mediation begins, your BAY mediator collaborates with each legal team, communicating as necessary to ensure a smooth mediation process. Mediations can often be accomplished in a single session or, in more complex cases, span multiple meetings.

  4. Mediation:

    During the actual mediation, your BAY mediator gathers relevant information from both sides, pinpointing key issues and avenues for finding common ground. There are opportunities for confidential breakout sessions with your BAY mediator, during which your mediator may help identify advantages or weaknesses within the case.

  5. Resolution:

    Your neutral will collaboratively craft a written final agreement between the involved parties, enhancing the likelihood of successful implementation. While not all mediations result in resolutions, BAY Mediation boasts an above-industry-average rate of successful resolutions.
