Do you need a lawyer for your mediation session in Slovakia?
From the legal point of view, let us briefly describe the ways to enforce a mediation agreement. The agreement is binding for all parties. If a party does not keep an arrangement reached in a mediation session, the agreement can only be enforced under certain conditions. The Slovak law clearly states that the agreement can only be enforced, if it was concluded in writing and:
- in the form of a notarial record, or
- approved before a court or a court of arbitration as a settlement.
Generally, mediation can be used as ADR in Slovakia. However, it is advisable to keep in mind a possible enforcement of the mediation agreement. If you are interested in this topic, we are ready to provide you with more information.
