Mediation is especially appropriate where you expect to have an ongoing relationship with the other party well after the current dispute has been resolved. Some examples:
• Divorcing couples (especially where children are involved)
• Customers and vendors
• Partners and Joint Ventures
• Franchisors and Franchisees
• Principals and Agents
• Employers and Employees
Mediation allows you to arrive at creative arrangements that you will never be able to get from a judge.
Mediation allows you to reach agreements without going through the nastiness of litigation which could permanently damage relationships.
Mediation allows you to save a bundle of money by getting you out of an expensive litigation process.
