With the coronavirus pandemic forcing more people to stay home, businesses across the country must find ways to perform their work without face-to-face interactions. Yet the pandemic has not reduced sources of disagreement.

Fast resolution of conflicts is often necessary for businesses to navigate this unusual time, and mediation can help with that. Yet the demands of social distancing make traditional, face-to-face mediation difficult. To answer this concern, Tampa mediator, Jeff Lieser, offers virtual business mediation services.

Digital mediation is an online form of traditional mediation. Specifically, it:

  • Man Attending a Virtual MeetingConnects disputing parties with a mediator through a secure, private online conference platform.
