In the End, Why Opt for Mediation?

Is Mediation distinct as a dispute resolution institution and if so, why and how?

Is it useful, indeed often necessary, and if so, why?

Can it provide solutions or an occasion for solutions when there are no equivalent alternatives, and if so, why?

Can it help the parties to a dispute and, if so, how?

Why can non-Mediation be a missed opportunity?

Why can the failure to reach an agreement through Mediation also be an opportunity?

Why is it therefore difficult to conceive of a "failed" Mediation?

Why is it an ESG practice?

Why is it highly promoted by the EU?

How can it ultimately make a difference?

Dimitris Emvalomenos, Lawyer, LL.M., Accredited Mediator of the Greek Ministry of Justice & the Centre of Effective Dispute Resolution (CEDR) in London, UK, Deputy Managing Partner of Bahas, Gramatidis & Partners (BGP) Law Firm, answers all the above questions, codifying the distinctive features and justifying the multi-level benefits of Mediation, in his paper "IN THE END, WHY OPT FOR MEDIATION?”
