What Are Three Ways to Settle a Dispute Out of Court?
Avoiding court—and the time, expense, and stress a trial brings—is a main concern of many business owners. Fortunately, there are several ways to settle various business and commercial disputes without ever having to step foot in the courtroom.
Depending on the specifics of your situation, you may be able to settle a dispute out of court in one of the following ways:
- Negotiation: In some cases, it may be possible to resolve various business disputes through negotiation. During negotiation, your attorney will work with you and the opposing party/counsel in an attempt to reach a mutual agreement regarding the dispute. This can be successful when both sides are willing to compromise in order to reach an arrangement that they both can agree to.
- Mediation: This form of alternative dispute resolution involves a neutral third party, the certified mediator, who facilitates a mutual agreement between the two parties. Mediators have specific training in the law and work to promote communication between the two sides and/or either side’s legal counsel. If a resolution is reached, the mediator will create a memorandum detailing the agreement. This will then be reviewed by either party (typically with their attorneys) before a legally binding agreement is made.
- Arbitration: Of the available alternative dispute resolution options, arbitration is the most like trial. In arbitration, a neutral third party known as the arbitrator hears either side’s position in much the same way that a judge would at trial. After hearing both sides, the arbitrator will provide a legally binding decision. Prior to arbitration, both parties must agree to follow the arbitrator’s decision, whatever it may be.
Our attorneys can help you explore various alternative dispute resolution options and work to avoid litigation. We understand that this is an important concern for businesses and are prepared to help you understand all of your unique options as they pertain specifically to your situation.
