Mediation is a consensual, non-binding, “without prejudice” process whereby a neutral third party assists the parties in dispute to reach a mutually agreed settlement without recourse to the courts or arbitration.
Mediation differs from litigation and arbitration because a judge or arbitrator does not impose a binding decision on the parties. It enables the parties to work with the Mediator to come to their own solution.
In Sport Resolutions’ experience, mediation has helped to successfully resolve a wide range of sporting disputes, including:
- Disputes concerning payments arising from terminations of coaching contracts.
- Relationship disputes between athletes and coaches which are undermining sporting success.
- Disputes concerning payments due following terminations of commercial agreements.
- Disputes between sporting organizations over their rights and entitlements to govern aspects of their sport.
