Businesses in commercial disputes want to save time, money and relationships in resolving them. This programme will detail how to achieve a satisfactory and timely solution through mediation.
Businesses in commercial disputes want to save time, money and relationships in resolving them. Mediation does this in ways arbitration or litigation cannot, and can achieve outcomes different to those available at court or in arbitration. Many jurisdictions now expect disputing parties to mediate before arbitrating or litigating. Mediation is increasingly becoming the preferred option for dispute resolution. A working knowledge of the mediation process is an invaluable tool for any in -house counsel, litigation lawyer or commercial manager.
Success at mediation depends on the parties’ mind set. Seeing the dispute settlement as a deal to be done rather than a battle to be won is key and enables the parties to look forwards not backwards. This is a different to the litigation approach. At mediation it is not so much a question of who is right or wrong but what is best for the businesses.
