Mediation is an excellent way to resolve construction, contract, and other business disputes. Even if the conflict is so convoluted and contentious that arbitration or litigation appear inevitable, mediation can at least narrow the issues to be decided.
Mediators do not decide who is right and who is wrong. They facilitate a solution to the problem, which best fits the interest and needs of the parties.
In choosing a mediator, you should select someone who already has a good command of the facts and the law. Jeff Lieser is a circuit civil mediator with a positive track record in helping parties resolve conflicts.
Jeff contacts counsel before the first mediation session to discuss the issues, the interests and the relationships in the case. He also respects counsel’s strategic decision to not disclose certain information to the other side.
Jeff has a good sense of which issues and parties to focus on first. He gathers information before mediation and determines that all necessary parties will be present with adequate authority to settle. In short, Jeff has a “plan of attack” and nudges the attorneys along that plan.
With Jeff’s help, you can resolve your case faster and cheaper than you could through litigation.
