Disputes within a company, at times including shareholders, partners, members, employees or the like, or between two or more companies, are costly and often highly disruptive, especially once in litigation when the discovery process takes hold. Mediation offers parties to such disputes quick access to a dispute resolution process which is prompt and cost effective. The potential for success in informal dispute resolution procedure is heightened when the mediator is experienced, knowledgeable and balanced.
