In complex disputes, the jurisdiction of the state often reaches its limits. Mediation is a structured proceeding that can bring about an adequate and acceptable conflict resolution by way of an open fathoming of the parties’ needs and purposes provided that the parties have a general willingness to settle the dispute. In the future, mediation will become increasingly important when it comes to dispute settlement.

As an alternative to the jurisdiction of the state, mediation is based on voluntariness under the competent guidance of a neutral and impartial mediator who does not have a decision-making power. The aim is to consensually settle the conflict, either avoiding a lawsuit or, in the case where a proceeding is already pending, bringing about an amicable adjustment that is accepted by all parties.
