When choosing for mediation ?
For many conflicts, legal proceedings are not the optimal way to reach a satisfactory solution. It is time-consuming and expensive. The outcome is often uncertain. Moreover, the relationship with the counterparty almost always comes to an end, as a result. While it is essential to maintain good trade relations.
Mediation is a much better choice in those cases. The parties thus keep control. Together with the mediator, the dialogue between the parties is restored. This allows you to look for a suitable solution that is acceptable to both parties. All this happens within a short period of time and at a limited cost.
In addition to mediation, you can also opt for collaborative negotiations. Within a set process, you and your collaborative lawyer, and your counterparty and their collaborative lawyer, will look for an appropriate amicable solution to your dispute. The parties hereby experience the active cooperation of the lawyers who contribute to an 'out of the box' solution that best meets the interests and needs of both parties, so that it becomes a lasting solution.
Would you like to start a mediation process or collaborative negotiations or to explore the possibilities, then Laurence Hubert, one of the few mediators with in-depth knowledge of IP and privacy who is also a collaborative lawyer, is at your disposal.
