Litigation can be a costly and time-consuming procedure that can intensify hostility in the parties and create emotional road blocks that cause clients to become entrenched in their positions even when it is not in their best interest. Mediation and/or arbitration sometimes offer a better solution. Often a neutral third party helps clients articulate and frame issues, identify options, and then negotiate a solution that is agreeable to both sides.
