The Benefits of Mediation

Mediation is a process of facilitated dialogue between two parties to resolve a dispute. The process is designed to help both sides come to a mutually acceptable compromise without the need for costly legal action. It provides a safe and non-confrontational space for the parties to discuss their differences in an effort to reach a resolution. The advantages of mediation include greater control over the outcome, less stress, increased privacy, and cost savings.

Gather Information

When looking for an alternate resolution after mediation has failed, the first step is to gather information. Talk to your lawyer or a trusted friend to understand your legal options. You may need to look into additional forms of dispute resolution such as arbitration or a civil lawsuit. Research these options and understand the advantages and disadvantages of each.

Seek Professional Advice

It can be difficult to make decisions on your own when dealing with a complex dispute. Seeking professional advice from your lawyer or a legal advisor can provide you with clarity and a better understanding of the situation. A professional can review the facts of your case and provide guidance on the best course of action going forward.

Consider Mediation Again

If the mediation process has failed, you may want to consider mediation again. It may be possible to come to an agreement if the parties involved can look at the situation from a different perspective. In some cases, a different mediator can bring a fresh perspective to the table that can help the parties resolve their dispute.
