Commercial mediation, as practiced by mainstream litigation-oriented mediators, can feel like either a silly game or an all-out war. Only lawyers find spending the day in separate rooms, being manipulated by a retired judge, to be in any way meaningful or rewarding. Transformative Mediation, on the other hand, provides procedural justice. Simon Mediation supports clients in addressing their dispute in the most meaningful way possible.
Clients (with the assistance of their lawyers, if desired) get to talk about the situation on their own terms. They’re not pressured to compromise. Instead, they’re invited to say whatever they want to communicate to the other party, and ask whatever questions they need answered in order to move forward. Especially in cases that concern financial matters, Simon Mediation helps clients make the best possible decisions about how to negotiate a fraught situation successfully. Most often, within a few hours, clients arrive at a settlement they are truly satisfied with.
