Mediation in commercial contexts
Conflicts and disputes arise from time to time in business. The big question is not if they arise, but how you solve them. Mediation is particularly suitable for disputes between parties who have ongoing business relationships. It can e.g. refer to disputes concerning joint ownership of companies and collaborations of other kinds as well as in rent, labor and construction disputes. It can also be a contract negotiation, where the parties fail to reach a final solution.
The mediator has a duty of confidentiality according to law. Through a confidentiality agreement, the parties also have a duty of confidentiality regarding everything that has occurred and been said during the mediation.
When the mediation is terminated by agreement, there is the possibility of having it enforceable, if the parties so wish.
