Resolving Business Disputes With Mediation Or Litigation

When faced with conflicts, entrepreneurs can opt to resolve them through mediation or litigation. Since business disputes can arise in many forms, you are better off hiring an attorney who is skilled in both areas. Their experience in resolving disputes through mediation can help them assess the unique circumstances of your dispute and advocate for your interests every step of the way.

With the recent changes in Iowa law allowing gambling expansion, the Council Bluffs economy has experienced significant growth. With the growth comes the potential conflicts that require resolution. Some of the common reasons businesses seek assistance include:

  • Contract disagreements
  • Partnership disputes
  • Intellectual property conflicts
  • Disagreements over financial matters

These disputes can disrupt operations, strain relationships and lead to financial losses if not addressed immediately and effectively. A contract dispute mediator or some other form of mediation can help get a business back on track quickly.

What Are The Benefits And Disadvantages Of Mediation?

Benefits of a business dispute mediation process include:

  • Faster resolution times compared to litigation
  • Customizable solutions tailored to individual needs and interests
  • Both sides can walk away satisfied with the results
  • Discussions are “without prejudice”
  • More economical than litigation
  • Other options remain available if mediation fails

The drawbacks of mediation are:

  • Inappropriateness for cases requiring public disclosure
  • Possibility of withdrawal by either party
  • Risk of unintentional disclosure benefiting the opposing party

Business dispute mediation requires careful consideration. Our certified business mediator, Nicole Hughes, can facilitate clear communication throughout the process.

What Are The Benefits And Disadvantages Of Litigation

Some of the major benefits of litigation are:

  • Offers formal legal procedures and remedies
  • Court decisions set legal precedents, guiding future cases
  • Court judgments are binding and enforceable

The pitfalls of litigation include:

  • The outcomes are always uncertain, with clear winners and losers
  • Lengthy process with potential years of court delays
  • Higher costs for legal representation

While each method has its distinctive features, our attorneys have extensive experience in both. If you are considering mediating a business dispute or business litigation, we can guide you toward the best resolution method for your legal situation.
