Whether you are the plaintiff or defendant, the mediation process helps you cost-effectively negotiate a rational settlement through the assistance of a mutually agreed and neutral third-party Mediator. The neutral Mediator helps you and your adversaries identify an acceptable resolution. Unlike litigation or arbitration, mediation gives parties control over the result, and the parties are free to move to solutions that address their true needs and interests. You can craft business-oriented solutions, and avoid the uncertainties, risk, and cost of a full-fledged litigation.
