Target Mediation provides a service which can include the parties and their lawyers attending mediation sessions. This would usually be for a full day, and where there are complex financial issues so that access to instant legal advice really makes a difference. Civil and commercial disputes are mediated this way.
The process starts with a joint meeting with you both and your respective lawyers together in a room with the mediator. The outline of the day is explained, and there is a summary of the situation, what needs to be resolved and the information available.
Then there are individual sessions of around 20 minutes where the mediator speaks to each party separately, and relays the information back to the other person and their lawyer. The options are then discussed and proposals, suggestions or revisions are then fed back and forth between the parties.
Sometimes everyone comes back together, sometimes not. Sometimes it is just the parties who come together, sometimes not. This whole service can be offered online as well, which can help reduce costs further and speed up the resolution of issues.
The process is flexible and is not constrained by a rigid set of rules, every mediation is different, as every case is different.
