Litigation is a costly, tremendously stressful, and not-always-necessary form of dispute resolution for small businesses. If your small business is faced with a legal/moral conflict that cannot be solved without the help of a third-party, then hiring a mediator may be right for you.

What is a Mediator?

A mediator is a non-partial third-party professional that aims to solve conflicts by meeting with parties and listening to all sides of the story to find genuine and sustainable solutions. By cultivating an environment of understanding, mediators help all involved parties come to confidential, voluntary decisions regarding the outcome of conflicts.

Mediator Costs

Mediation is less expensive than litigation. Typically charging by the hour, private mediators work quickly and efficiently to find realistic solutions to issues, without the additional costs that are associated with hiring a lawyer for litigation (case preparation, discovery, trial  etc).

Mediation Results

The vast majority of mediations end in settlements. Upon the successful completion of mediation, both parties will sign a binding agreement that clearly states the results of mediation, and the expectation of all involved parties. If mediation does not yield an agreement, arbitration or litigation may be a necessary next step.
