Mediation is a flexible process where the procedure and format are agreed by the parties in accordance with their commercial needs. Thus there is no set procedure but usually commercial mediations go through a number of phases.

Generally, a final joint meeting is held to record the agreed terms of settlement, usually in the form of a legally binding contract.
