Mediation, governed by the law of 21 February 2005 and of 18 June 2018, is a voluntary and confidential process of conflict resolution in which the parties have recourse to an independent and impartial third party, the mediator.

The mediator helps the parties analyse the situation, encourages and structures the communication between them and assists them in the development of solutions that meet the interests of each.

In order for this agreement to be binding, a mediator certified by the Federal Mediation Commission can have it probated by the court.

The duration of a mediation depends, on the one hand, on the complexity and intensity of the dispute and, on the other hand, the nature of the latter.

The benefits of mediation are multiple:

  • a customised solution which allows the two parties to remain “on good terms”,
  • a saving of time and money,
  • confidentiality,
  • a voluntary process : the mediation can be terminated at any time
