Oftentimes, clients of The Law Offices of Steven E. Springer come to us with an issue they believe they need to litigate, but they are concerned by the cost to their bottom line and their company’s reputation. At other times, there are problems between the parties, but both sides want to preserve an amicable relationship with each other. The firm’s mediation practice group allows you, as the client, to have more control over the process than would be available in litigation. It also allows you to achieve faster, more predictable results than what’s possible in a court or through the arbitration process.
A “FRIENDLY” SOLUTION TO DIFFICULT PROBLEMS
In many cases, business litigation is the least attractive option. If you have an existing, long-term business relationship with your opponent, it may damage that relationship forever. In these cases, The Law Offices of Steven E. Springer may be able to utilize that cordial relationship to invoke mediation. In a mediation, the parties attempt to set aside their hostility or disagreements and find key points on which to agree, ultimately reaching a compromise that satisfies some concerns of both parties.
Because mediation is confidential and informal, it’s considered an extremely effective tool in both corporate and legal settings to preserve stability and well-being for your company, your employees, your community, and your business relationships without the turbulence and uncertainty of litigation. Indeed, while court-ordered mediations may occur, the firm has conducted mediation at all stages, from pre-lawsuit to pretrial. Clients often prefer mediation because it reduces the stress involved in legal conflicts and allows the parties to make the important decision together — rather than letting an unaffiliated judge do so instead.
A STRATEGIC TEAM FOR RESOLVING COMPLEX ISSUES
Since the firm’s experience shows that litigation often ends in settlement, the attorneys often suggest mediation as a more efficient and cost-effective means of achieving that outcome, all while preserving or even enhancing the relationship between the parties. Mediations are confidential and do not involve the publicity of trial.
The Law Offices of Steven E. Springer recognizes and recommends mediation’s minimal risk with its significant chance of reward. When it’s in your best interest to resolve the dispute outside of the courtroom, mediation very frequently leads to a solution in which both parties win. Our team of experienced attorneys will guide you through the process and show you just how beneficial the simple act of mediation can be for your case.
