Keeping Your Business Dispute Out of Court: Is Mediation the Answer for You?

Keeping Your Business Dispute Out of Court: Is Mediation the Answer for You?As a business owner, you have a lot on your plate. You must keep your own business on the straight and narrow, while ensuring that vendors, clients, customers, etc. are following applicable rules. This can all be hard enough as it is, but when the business dispute comes from within the company, it can feel impossible.

You don’t want details of your company’s operations released to the world. You don’t want to deal with the cost and hassle of a court trial. But you also don’t want to just roll over and give in to terms that aren’t fair for your side of the case. This is when business dispute mediation may come in handy. Read on to learn more about it and then contact Law Offices of Torrence L. Howell at (909) 920-0908 for a free case evaluation.

We have the unique background to help you move forward

When you need mediation services, you need a trainer mediator who can find the alternative solutions that will work for all parties. That said, you also need someone who has legal experience. That’s what you’ve found in us. We are impartial in our mediation services and are looking to find a solution that works for all parties involved. We’ve worked on business disputes that were simple and some that were extremely complex. We know how these cases end up when taken to court and we will do everything we can to guide all parties toward an agreement.

There are many situations in which mediation makes sense

Mediation isn’t right for every type of business law issue. However, there are many situations in which it may be the best idea. This includes breach of contract and other contract disputes, disputes over international business, debt collection disputes, disputes involving intellectual property or trademark, and disputes between shareholders and partnerships.

There are two things you need in a mediator

As you search for the right mediation option, there are two things you need to find. First, you need a mediator who’s entirely impartial. Though it may seem as though it would be helpful to have a mediator on your side, the truth is that it wouldn’t. If there was any evidence that came up that the mediator wasn’t impartial, then their decision could be reversed and the decision wouldn’t stand.

Second, you want a mediator that knows the law. While you do want someone who’s experienced in conflict resolution and knows how to help, you also want a mediator who knows the law they’re mediating. This doesn’t mean that they know the basics of business law – it means they should know the ins and outs of it. They should understand the nuances and complexities of business law.

If you need help deciding what the best option is for your company then it’s worth reaching out to an attorney. At Law Offices of Torrence L. Howell, we offer a free case evaluation so you have nothing to lose. Call us today at (909) 920-0908 and let’s get started.

Best Lawyer and Staff Torrence and his paralegal Tiffany were the absolute best. In the consultation with Torrence alone I discovered my divorce was going to leave me with much more than I had realized. If I had just went with a mediator like I had originally planned I'd have been lucky to keep my
