All organizations face challenging situations from time-to-time that can be costly in terms of time, money and lost productivity. Frequently these situations can be resolved quickly and effectively with mediation, while avoiding costly litigation.

Mediation is a dynamic, structured, confidential process where all parties participate in communication with interactions managed by a neutral third party. Mediation can be required by contract, court order or entered into voluntarily by all parties to save time, costs and come to a better solution.

During mediation, Mettise uses a variety of techniques to guide the conversation in a constructive direction. The ultimate goal of mediation is to find common ground, re-frame issues and identify the source of the disagreement during contested situations allowing all parties to arrive at a mutually beneficial solution.

Situations that may benefit from mediation include:

  • Employment issues such as harassment allegations and other workplace disputes
  • Contract negotiations
  • Strategic and joint partnership agreements
  • Commercial real estate transactions
  • Insurance settlement agreements
  • Embezzlement and other instances of employment/partner misconduct
  • Labor grievances that require mediation
