When a dispute is looming the time, money and effort to resolve it can be exhausting, expensive and commercially damaging. The best time to mediate is before the litigation begins as cash flow is important to the small business.
If you are separating or divorcing, family mediation sorts out disputes cheaply and quickly. Start mediation as soon as you and your partner have decided to split before issues like arrangements for children become difficult to overcome.
Early mediated solutions have strategic advantages. Commercial relationships are worth preserving and disputes are best resolved quickly. In a competitive market, focus on growth and expansion can be lost whilst resolving disputes.
