Knowledgeable Business Lawyer Providing Mediation Services
An increasing number of business contracts include mediation clauses designed to avoid litigation in the event of a dispute. Mediation provides a forum where both parties can have a say in resolving a dispute. The process is typically more efficient, cost-effective and causes less disruption to the operation of the business compared to litigating the dispute. When choosing a mediator, not only is it important to consider the person’s knowledge of the law, the parties must also consider his or her understanding of the realities of operating a business.
