Benefits of Mediation, Arbitration, and Settlement Counsel

Commercial and other civil disputes are complex. Mediation, arbitration and settlement counsel offer valuable alternatives to the costs and uncertainty of lengthy, expensive litigation.

Sometimes, the best alternative to a trial is a mediation, in which the disputing parties hire a neutral third party to assist them in negotiating a resolution of their issues. Frank Bedell’s mediation services can be retained for a variety of disputes. Whether parties engage in mediation by agreement or by court order, Frank Bedell is committed to helping them optimize case outcomes and arrive at a resolution to their dispute.

Other times, when a case needs to be tried but the parties want to avoid the courtroom, arbitration may be the best option. In arbitration, all parties agree to dispute resolution by an arbitrator or arbitration panel.
