But what if you could turn this annoyance into an advantage? Instead of time-consuming and expensive litigation that leaves everybody unhappy, what if you could handle disagreements in a way that strengthens rather than weakens relationships?
Around the world, businesses frustrated with the costs and unpredictability of the legal system are turning to mediation. Unlike the public, frustrating court process, mediation is a private, flexible procedure in which a trained professional assists the parties in reaching a settlement that works for both sides. A true “win-win” solution.
Compared to litigation, mediation is more flexible, cost-effective, private and efficient than the public litigation process. Though all matters are not appropriate for mediation, most are, and its no wonder then that worldwide, around 60-80% of all disputes referred to mediation are successfully resolved.
It’s not surprising, then, that mediation is one of the fastest growing dispute resolution methods, as businesses discover that its flexibility and effectiveness mean faster, more effective and less painful resolution of disputes. [Jun-2021]
