A better and more cost-effective alternative to resolving commercial, employee and customer disputes.
New York, New York (PRWEB) May 17, 2012
For a business owner, risk manager or human resource "HR" executive addressing employee, customer and third-party disputes is an inevitable reality of day-to-day business.
The prospect of an unresolved dispute can potentially prove damaging to a company's operations, reputation and finances. Going to court and participating in commercial or employment litigation can be a overwhelming for any business owner, manager or executive. The legal fees, protracted time and emotional drain involved in litigation are the high costs of participation in a dispute-whether a party wins or looses.
The reality is that most cases settle-at the steps of the courthouse or prior to the judgment being rendered. However, the result of engaging in litigation as a first option, frequently hardens the parties' positions and as result frames the dispute in a win or loose scenario. Spiraling legal fees ensue as each side endeavors to persuade the court of the merits of their case, and years may transpire before the parties feel "ready" to engage in productive settlement negotiations.

Through the negotiation and professional mediation services of the Clinic, parties gain control over their legal costs by framing their dispute, in the first instance, as a win-win scenario- where both sides have the potential to benefit.
