When Mediation Should Be Used Instead of Litigation

Oct. 23, 2023

One thing’s for sure: litigation is expensive but the good news is that it’s not always necessary! In some cases, mediation is the better (and cost efficient) route. Here are a few examples of when mediation should be used instead of litigation:

  • If the parties want to preserve their relationship with one another. This could be neighbors, divorced partners, or employers and employees.

  • If direct negotiations have stalled or failed. Keep in mind that mediation is a non-binding process, meaning mediators can’t impose a decision on the two parties.

  • If the dispute has room for compromise. When each party has room to compromise and reach an agreeable solution, mediation is ideal.
