If you are dissolving your business, having issues with your business partner, or having problems with a client, it can be challenging and stressful. As issues persist and grow, they can often lead to lengthy and expensive court involvement, where there is no guarantee of a satisfactory outcome. Civil mediation offers an alternative approach that can help parties resolve disputes without the need for litigation. You maintain control of the outcome and can bring up issues in a confidential setting.
Civil mediation is particularly useful in business disputes, where the parties have ongoing relationships. It can be critical to the success of a business that these relationships are preserved and maintained, and mediation offers an excellent forum where that can happen. Mediation helps each party in the relationship gain a clear understanding of the other’s needs and concerns – even when they don’t agree. Mediation facilitates the exploration of creative solutions to preserve your business.
Advantages of Civil Mediation
Civil mediation offers several advantages over traditional litigation, including:
- Confidentiality:Mediation is a confidential process, meaning that anything discussed during the mediation cannot be used in court if the dispute is not resolved. This allows parties to speak freely and openly without the fear of their words being used against them.
- Cost-effective: Mediation is very often less expensive than going to court. There are no lawyers or judges; just you and the other party, guided by a trained, professional mediator.
- Agency: Mediation allows the parties to maintain control over the outcome of their dispute. Each party benefits from the time and space to share their unique perspectives, and have their ideas heard and explored.
