Mediation can help to resolve disputes between parties involved in small commercial disputes. Mr. Wachel has served in the Essex County Special Civil Part as both an arbitrator and mediator to address small commercial disputes.
Mediation is a voluntary and confidential process where a neutral third party, the mediator, assists the parties in reaching a mutually acceptable resolution and avoid having to litigation the matter and requiring a judge to settle the dispute. Mediation allows parties to discuss their issues openly and explore potential solutions in a less formal setting than a courtroom. As a mediator, we do not have decision-making authority but helps the parties find common ground and reach a settlement.
The use of these alternative dispute resolution methods can help expedite the resolution of conflicts in a more efficient and cost-effective manner.
