At Cape Winelands Mediation we see mediation as an alternative way of resolving disputes, outside court. It is flexible, and cost efficient, and less stressful for all parties involved than litigation. It is an ideal way of helping couples and people in business parting ways in a practical, responsible and sensible manner.
