Mediation Northwest provides mediation services to closely held businesses. Typically, family-run businesses seek mediation services for the following reasons:
- internal dispute
- second or third generation succession planning
- partnership/ownership dissolution
- transfer of ownership
Business mediations generally take three to four mediation sessions. Some more, some less. Mediation Northwest has two conference rooms to allow for separate sessions and a large conference room to allow for large party mediations. Some parties have their attorney present during mediation. Other parties do not hire attorneys.
