Mediations and Arbitrations

Our Process

Three Phases of Mediation


Introductory Phase — A joint session is sometimes held among the parties and their attorneys during which opposing sides have an opportunity to state their views and desired outcomes; the mediator helps the parties create a safe environment in which to discuss difficult topics. Mediation Agreements are signed at the beginning or before the mediation.


Problem Solving Phase — Parties principally focus on issues, interests, options for resolution and criteria for evaluating the options. If there is an opening joint session, parties meet in their own private conference rooms with the mediator to share confidences and fully consider options in private. The mediator regularly shuttles between the private rooms and negotiates the case to a settlement.


Closure  During this phase, parties decide whether and on what terms to resolve the dispute. The mediator may help them draft a document that reflects any commitments they wish to make. The agreement will be reviewed by the attorneys present for approval. The parties and attorneys leave with a copy of a signed settlement agreement.

Transforming Conflict into Opportunity

With a deep understanding of the complexities and challenges that conflicts can bring, we are committed to helping individuals, organizations, and communities navigate through conflict while also creating new possibilities for growth and collaboration.
