First, we will open a Court file by preparing and issuing a document called a “Statement of Claim”. This must be served on the party you are suing, who will normally take it to his or her insurance company. The insurance company will then retain a lawyer to defend the case. That lawyer will respond by filing a “Statement of Defence”.
At the outset the mediator will outline the terms of the mediation. He will explain that each side will be given an opportunity to present opening remarks, discuss the issues and often an opportunity for the clients to speak as well. The subject matter of what you will say at the mediation should be discussed with us in advance. At a later point in the mediation the mediator will take one side or the other and pull them away for a caucus. In the caucus confidential discussions will take place for developing a strategy to attempt resolution.
