Business Disputes

Many business are cognizant of the potential adverse impact that lawsuits and legal action may have against a company.  Whether fair or unfair, legal action against a business can generate negative perception and unwanted public scrutiny.  In many instances, the litigation can impair the reputation and goodwill of a company that had been developed over many years.  Both private and public businesses are generally ultimately answerable to someone–customers, shareholders, prospective business partners and/or business associates.  Mediation offers a wealth of benefits to businesses who must decide how to best resolve an important business dispute or already embroiled in litigation.   Through mediation, the parties to a business dispute can often achieve an acceptable resolution without exposure of sensitive business and personal information and without resort to protracted, costly litigation.
