Services

BREAKTHROUGHADR has expertise in helping parties involved in commercial disputes resolve their differences. We serve as a third party neutral mediator (in other words, we have no “skin in the game” and are not impacted by the outcome) for the following types of disputes: co-founders, owners, investor-related, business-to-business, business-to-consumer, employer/employee, and other commercial disputes.

BREAKTHROUGHADR’s approach seeks to diffuse the emotions and entrenched positions of each party to create the space to reach an equitable agreement for all involved.

WHAT IS MEDIATION? Mediation is a voluntary, informal and confidential process during which a neutral third party facilitates a conversation between people in conflict. Mediation is a collaborative problem-solving approach that allows the parties to assert their right to self-determination and be proactive in controlling the outcome. All parties to the conflict are at the table.

WHO SHOULD MEDIATE? Mediation is for everyone.

WHY IS MEDIATION BENEFICIAL? For individuals, mediation gives each party involved a chance to listen and be heard and to control the outcome of the mediation. For companies, it is a cost-efficient way to resolve disputes and give your employees the tools to prevent disputes from escalating into more pervasive issues.
