With litigation costs rapidly escalating, mediation has emerged as the most popular alternative dispute resolution option. Featuring an informal setting, with or without legal counsel, mediation offers an opportunity to eliminate the risks associated with trial, substantially reduce expenses, and timely resolve disputes with the guidance of a neutral non-party. Parties can mediate their disputes at any time, even before initiating litigation.
A mediator facilitates dialogue, offers suggestions and explores avenues toward a resolution, but the parties remain in total control of the outcome. Though financial issues predominate in most disputes, often non-monetary issues present the most formidable barriers to resolution, and thus, our mediators explore creative solutions to help the parties achieve their objectives.
