Experienced Albuquerque NM Business Mediator Effectively Resolves Business Disputes
Every day, businesses participate in numerous transactions. When there is conflict involved in these transactions, businesses have a number of options to resolve them. Many turn to the process of litigation and threaten lawsuits. However, a much more amicable option is available through the process of mediation.
Mediation involves a skilled Albuquerque NM business mediator who uses conflict resolution skills and effective communication techniques to help business partners, vendors, shareholders and others involved in a business dispute to reach an agreement that satisfies the interests of the parties. As a seasoned litigator, R.E. Thompson realizes that the courtroom does not always provide the most favorable outcome for people involved in business disputes and encourages them to consider resolving their dispute through a more amicable, affordable and efficient process.
Business Disputes that Can Be Resolved through Mediation
Mediation is a voluntary process in which the parties agree to have a neutral third party to guide them through negotiations. The role of an Albuquerque New Mexico business mediator is not to impose a judgment on the parties as a judge would do. Instead, the mediator improves the communication between the parties and delves into their interests in order to suggest possible compromises that will achieve these interests.
Because this process avoids the time and expense of litigation and clarifies misunderstandings between the parties, mediation is particularly effective in the business context as it often allows parties to maintain their business relationship or continue a contract. Some of the business disputes that can effectively be resolved through mediation include:
- Breach of contract
- Partnership disputes
- Shareholder disputes
- Claims of professional negligence
- Claims of breach of fiduciary duty
- Employment issues
- Unfair competition
- Intellectual property disputes
- Commercial real property disputes
- Warranty disputes
- Billing disputes
When parties agree to resolve these types of disputes through the mediation process, they open themselves to the possibility of a mutually-satisfactory resolution that allows them to continue their business relationship, if desired.
