MEDIATION PROCESS

Nina Khouri’s mediations are voluntary, flexible and totally confidential. The process is designed to help parties resolve their dispute by full and final settlement agreement.

 

During the mediation, Nina works closely with the parties and their lawyers to identify and exchange information about the issues causing the dispute, to engage in productive debate and strategic analysis of those issues, and to negotiate a settlement. This is done through a combination of joint and private meetings throughout the mediation.

 

Preparation is essential. Nina asks the parties to her mediations to provide her with background information about the dispute. She also conducts pre-mediation meetings, usually by telephone. This enables her to structure a mediation process that maximises the chances of a successful resolution of the dispute.

MEDIATION PHILOSOPHY

Parties come to mediation to resolve a dispute, but not at any cost. Nina Khouri’s guiding principle as a mediator is that each party must make an informed decision whether to settle, acting solely in their own best interests and without pressure from the mediator. Subject to this, she believes that a mediator’s value lies in their ability to work patiently, persistently and intelligently with the parties to find the agreement that resolves their dispute.
