short-term mediation

Sometimes it is necessary to find a fast solution because if not, a business transaction, for example, cannot be reached or claims for damages could impend. Sometimes you have to find a fast solution simply because the parties to the conflict shrink from tackling the „big issues“. In all these cases the solution would be a short-term mediation. In only one session, separate conflicts or parts of an overall conflict can be resolved successfully. According to the content and extent of the conflict or subconflict a short-term mediation session takes between three and eight hours. It is prepared carefully and thoroughly on the basis of the information collected beforehand, adhering to a tight time management. Experience shows that short-term mediation leads to good results. Afterwards, the parties involved are very often prepared and willing to address further topics.
