∼ MORE ABOUT BUSINESS MEDIATION ∼

• Mediation assists parties in a Business Dispute to develop a plan on how  to resolve financial issues.

• What emerges from successful mediation is a plan that is formulated by YOU, the parties – and not imposed upon you by a court.

• It is a process that is entirely voluntarily where the YOU are in control  with the goal of a peaceful outcome.

• One of the benefits of mediation is the avoidance of a far more destructive, expensive and lengthy process – a lawsuit.

• Mediation can take place before a lawsuit or complaint is filed, or after a filing.

• If the mediation is successful, the dispute can usually be finalized within a matter of weeks, not the years it can frequently take to have the case resolved in court.

• Courts  suggest mediation in an effort to avoid the time and expense of litigation.
