SBEMP’s Palm Springs mediation and arbitration lawyers show how businesses can resolve disputes without litigation through alternative resolution.

Palm Spring, CA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 07/07/2017 -- SBEMP is a Palm Springs mediation law firm, trained, certified and experienced in helping businesses of all kinds successfully resolve disputes using the processes of pre-trial mediation and arbitration.

Protecting the reputation of a business is a priority. Our Palm Springs mediation and arbitration lawyers routinely help businesses reach agreements in private, avoiding the publicity of a court environment.

How Does Mediation Work?

When two parties agree to use experienced mediation attorneys, the business representatives retain a great deal of control over the outcome of the dispute.

Rather than leaving the solution in the hands of a judge, businesses reach mutually satisfactory agreements with the help of professionals who assist them in exploring the facts, brainstorming creative solutions and drawing up written agreements. All this is done in a private, informal setting at the convenience of all parties.

Using mediation, the impartial mediator does not make decisions for either party. He or she meets with each party privately, and sometimes together, to express the needs and concerns of each. The mediator breaks the problem into manageable parts, facilitates dialog, suggests creative solutions and moves the process along until each sub-section of the issue is satisfactorily resolved.

What is Arbitration?

Arbitration is somewhat different from mediation in that the parties agree in advance that the arbitrator may make binding decisions if the parties themselves cannot settle on a mutually agreeable solution.

A judge may order disputing businesses to participate in mediation and arbitration before appearing in court. Businesses are wise to voluntarily engage the assistance of the Palm Springs mediation and arbitration lawyers before approaching a court. Agreements may be reached sooner than expected, saving time, money and reputations.

If an agreement cannot be reached and the matter goes to court, the judge will make the final determination. Both business representatives are wise to make every attempt to come to mutually beneficial agreements, using Palm Springs arbitration lawyers, before it reaches court and while the representatives still have control over the outcome.

It's fair to assume that a judge may not understand all the complexities of the businesses in dispute. A binding courtroom decision may seriously harm the financial stability and reputations of the businesses. It is far wiser to participate in mediation and/or arbitration with the business-savvy Palm Springs arbitration lawyers before risking the future of the businesses by putting important decisions in the hands of a court.

To explore the options of mediation and arbitration, to see if these options can work for your business dispute, contact SBEMP, our Palm Springs mediation law firm right away, while facts are still fresh and before the matter escalates. It is far better to address the situation head on and in private – before the situation requires litigation, which can certainly prove to be more time-consuming, expensive and public.
