Our Approach to Mediation and Conflict Resolution
At some point in business or family life, everyone is confronted with conflict, from contractual disagreements with a vendor to a personal difficulty between you and your loved ones. We work in a “round table” setting to create an environment where everyone has the opportunity to speak and address his or her concerns, and we make sure that everyone is heard.
Working outside of and parallel to the court system, our practitioners seek to help parties discover or develop solutions that are supportive and sustainable. If your family, business, or community is facing difficulty in resolving issues, contact us.
Similar to mediation except for two distinct and important differences: 1) The arbitrator provides a binding solution–similar to a judge, and 2) more information is needed by the arbitrator so the cost is more.
Client receives one-on-one guidance, tips and education on conflict management principles. This can be a general approach or specific to the client’s needs, such as situational or personal.
A four-stage service: Analysis of current conflict system, development of new system based on analysis, implementation of new system, and monitoring its efficacy.
