When you or your company becomes involved in a conflict, the path to a successful resolution isn't always clear. Court cases are time-consuming and costly, and the end results are imposed by external parties.
Mediation offers many benefits that the legal system does not:
High Success Rate
Parties enjoy a 90% agreement rate with mediation.
Mediation sessions are scheduled at the parties’ convenience at a variety of locations.
The parties, with the assistance of counsel, will decide the terms of any agreement. The mediator does not have decision-making authority and cannot impose a solution.
Mediation sessions can often be scheduled more quickly than court dates (depending on the parties’ and mediator’s schedule). Length of a session can take as little or as much time as the parties need.
Mediation costs a fraction of what it costs to litigate or prolong the conflict.
Mediation improves communication and understanding between parties. Mediation can strengthen business, personal and interpersonal relationships. Conflict is often resolved amicably without costly litigation.
