Early Dispute Resolution
Typically, parties will seek out mediators only after litigation has begun or a commercial dispute has arisen and litigation is imminent.
Johnson Conflict Resolution is driven to work with clients at the early stages of a development project to build consensus with key stakeholders and establish goodwill to stop opposition from ever taking root.
Johnson Conflict Resolution’s EDR practice is focused on getting in front of a dispute by diagnosing the root cause of a business conflict, whether it is emotional, financial or legal in nature, and then quickly addressing impediments before they turn into costly and time-consuming litigation.
L. J. Johnson works with parties to confidentially gather competing views on a subject and then devises a process whereby parties can efficiently resolve their differences.
Early dispute resolution can allow parties to avoid an actual mediation session altogether, or help them achieve a level of consensus that will allow them to mediate matters more rapidly.
