3.4 In the event that the parties continue to use mediation, the processing fee is used as a partial payment of the administrative tax. The costs of the witnesses for both parties are borne by the party who establishes such witnesses. All other mediation costs, including travel and other travel expenses necessary for mediation by the mediator and MMC representatives, as well as the costs of each witness, as well as the costs of proof or advice provided at the direct request of the mediator, are borne equally by the parties, unless they otherwise agree. It is also possible to use the Singapore Agreement in combination with the New York Convention, which allows the parties to apply an arbitration agreement (as well as an arbitration award), while the Singapore agreement does not allow the parties to apply a mediation agreement (only the conciliation agreement reached). 4.1 All information provided and disclosed in the context of mediation is treated confidentially. The mediator will only disclose the same thing if it is required by a common law or with the agreement of all parties, or if such disclosure is necessary to implement or enforce a transaction agreement. When the appointment is adopted, the royalties would be set on the basis of the agreement reached between the Ombudsman and the parties concerned. One possibility might be to reinstate Rajoo as acting director. He currently runs his own private practice, Sundra Rajoo Arbitration Chambers Sdn Bhd, in Kuala Lumpur. The other option for the trial parties and litigants is to migrate to mediation rather than conciliation, which is costly, and the process can be drawn. Lawyers such as Sarkodie urge traders to consider mediation. In the event of a dispute, you will be encouraged to speak with your designated legal representative about the jurisdictional and legal issues arising from the litigation, the strengths and weaknesses of your case, as well as the estimated costs and the time it takes for the litigation to be tried. It is always important to remember that this is always the right time to arbitrate, even at an advanced stage of litigation.
The costs of intermediation and the time spent on mediation are relatively lower and shorter than the costs and time spent resolving litigation in court. Therefore, mediation is always a better option or rather a good option, even if there is the slightest chance of reaching an agreement between the parties to the dispute. Even if, at the end of the mediation, the parties fail to reach an amicable agreement, at least the parties are able to draw the strengths and weaknesses of their case from the failure of the mediation attempt and subsequently reposition themselves. Because mediation identifies the underlying problems and allows for personalized solutions, mediation provides more creative solutions and solves problems that are important to the parties, apart from the underlying litigation.
