New York Full Service Mediation Lawyers
The law firm of Raff & Becker, LLP, is experienced in representing parties in mediation proceedings, training attorneys to represent parties in mediations and in conducting mediations.
If you are looking for an attorney to represent you either as a plaintiff or defendant in a discrimination or retaliation suit, it is important to find an attorney who is experienced both in representation in those areas of the law as well as in representing parties in mediation proceedings. We are experienced in providing representation in mediation that works to protect clients' rights and interests while pursuing mutually beneficial resolutions.
When you either claim or must defend your company against charges of discrimination or unlawful retaliation you should be prepared to go to mediation. The United States District Court of the Southern District of New York is now automatically assigning employment discrimination cases to mediation. The United States Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and the New York State Division of Human Rights also often offer parties the opportunity to mediate their cases.
Raff & Becker, LLP provides mediation services to parties who are seeking an expeditious and cost-effective resolution to disputes. If your company wants to provide a dispute resolution process to resolve disputes, contact our firm.
The Benefits of Mediation
Unlike arbitration or litigation, mediation is handled outside of a courtroom setting. Individual parties and their attorneys meet with a neutral mediator, who works with both sides to resolve issues. Mediation looks for common ground and seeks to promote compromise to the benefit of both parties.
Many employers and employees prefer mediation because it offers both sides the opportunity to achieve positive solutions, instead of relying on a final decision from a judge. Additionally, mediation offers a neutral space in which to constructively negotiate differences of opinion, rather than fighting over issues in the more antagonistic litigation. Furthermore, because mediation is handled outside of court, it is often more cost-effective for the parties involved.
Contact our New York mediation lawyers to discuss if mediation is the right solution for your employment-related dispute. Our attorneys will also provide services in arbitration or litigation if necessary.
