Business Owners Should Consider Mediation Before Litigation to Resolve Disputes:
A mediator can help business owners find ways to settle disputes on their own terms. Unlike an arbitrator, the mediator does not decide who is right or wrong. Rather, the mediator enables people to retain their decision-making power and use their creativity to find an acceptable solution for all parties.
Successfully mediated settlements commonly result in:
A cost-effective, speedy resolution
Reduced levels of stress and animosity among parties
Enhanced respect between the disagreeing parties
A sense of cooperation between parties
A feeling that the settlement is fair, reasonable, and cost-effective.
