Outcomes of mediation
Following successful negotiations, the mediator usually creates an official document or agreement (a protocol), which delineates equitable, legal and practical obligations satisfactory to all parties involved in the transaction or dispute.
Once a mutually agreeable solution is arrived at, the mediator, at the parties’ option, may act as an independent observer ensuring that the sides’ interests are preserved and resolving issues – if any were to arise – thus avoiding missteps or failure.
