Business Partnership Disputes
Any business partnership dispute that would otherwise find it's way to court is appropriate for mediation. These disputes are especially difficult and painful - in some ways similar to a marital divorce. Because business partnerships always begin positively with lofty expectations, disputes that arise can be extremely personal and bitter. Quite often legal contracts are lacking and are sometimes non-existent.
In the time it takes to fully discuss the facts of the dispute with an attorney, you can resolve the matter in mediation. Mediation is successful 95% of the time when the parties agree to participate.
Mediation of business partnership disputes rarely exceeds one day - with many settled in a half-day. And since the parties split the cost of mediation, the cost savings are significant.
