When parties are more open to negotiation and settlement, mediation is often the best course of action. Litigation can prove expensive and,in certain instances, risky.

Mediations are usually conducted at a much quicker pace than trials, so it can be beneficial for all parties involved to negotiate and settle through mediation.
