When might a mediator be better than a lawyer?
For most businesses, when a dispute arises the first place they may turn for advice is their lawyer. This makes sense. Lawyers understand rights and obligations and can give assistance in telling you what your chances of success of resolving the dispute are. This however, can lead to a problem. The law is an adversarial process. It is all about determining which party is right and which party is wrong. The law attributes blame. Now, the human psyche doesn’t like to be wrong.
