Using Mediation to Resolve Business Disputes

Some of the most contentious and expensive legal disputes in America involve internal business disputes between owners of a business.  The court system is often ill equipped to resolve these disputes without completely destroying the business that the owners worked so hard to build.  The use of alternative dispute resolution, and specifically mediation, provides an opportunity for business owners to explore ways to resolve their differences outside of court with the use of an independent and knowledgeable third party.  Mediation allows the parties to have direct control of the outcome of their dispute, is significantly less expensive than litigation, and can save the business from the inevitable negative impact of litigation.  The mediators at Briskin, Cross & Sanford have decades of business law experience and can assist business owners in amicably resolving internal and external disputes.
