Mediation for Businesses
Conflict is a part of life. It is also a part of business. After all, everyone you deal with has his own agenda. Sometimes, though, your business can get bogged down in conflict.
Mediation can be an effective, speedy and cost-efficient means of resolving most common types of business dispute, including
- Contract and commercial disputes
- Customer disputes (both B2B and significant consumer disputes)
- Disputes among business owners, whether or not they require renegotiation of existing agreements
- Disputes with employees
- “Business divorce” cases in which owners can no longer work together
Mediation can be helpful before litigation or after papers have been filed. Timing may matter in some cases, but you can reduce the scope of or resolve disagreements at any time so that you can get on with your business.
Mediation can be particularly helpful if you wish to maintain a relationship after the dispute is resolved. Negotiation is often less corrosive than litigation.
