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.
