Particularly in disputes involving corporate law, this sequence of steps will ensure that all topics near and dear to each party are brought up for open discussion before the mediator. In this way, it is warranted that all problems are tackled and resolved in a single package, without the need for numerous, separate procedures. This makes mediation a particularly efficient approach to dealing with disputes involving corporate law, especially those arising among shareholders.
Mediation in other types of cases
Whenever one works or lives together with others – be they other shareholders, spouses or partners, neighbors, colleagues, employers or friends – there will always be the risk of running into a number of conflict situations. If these disagreements are not resolved promptly, the resulting “wall of silence” may well lead to even greater conflict. Sooner or later, the parties’ differences will break out into the open and lead to a rupture. This is where mediation can help find a way out, since it gives the parties a chance to find ways toward a fair and acceptable settlement of the conflict under the guidance of the mediator. This in turn defuses hostilities and ultimately improves everyone’s quality of life.
