Nothing discussed during the process of mediation can beused in subsequent legal proceedings. Thus, one can discuss personalized agreement rather than imposed solutions.

Mediation, if not conducted online, takes place in neutral locations or at our center witht he approval of both parties.

It can be conducted in different languages and with consideration for local practices, culture, and traditions.
