Most people think of mediation as a tool to settle
disagreements outside of court, but mediation
can be used in another way.
Business disputes are often caused by lack of
clear communication between the parties
about their expectations.
and understanding of who does what and when.
So using a mediator to draft an agreement beforehand that
nails down dos and don’ts will cut down on costly time-consuming
disagreements that can bring business plans or ventures
to a grinding halt.
