If you securities law dispute or investment fraud case is in court in arbitration, the most reasonable path to a satisfactory outcome may be mediation. Parties in mediation have the ability to mutually control their own fate rather than have their futures dictated to them by a judge, jury, or arbitrator.
Have you suffered investment losses due to brokerage firm or broker misconduct? Or are you a broker, banker, or trader whose brokerage firm, hedge fund, investment bank, or private equity firm let you go shortly before you received a bonus? Whatever legal dilemma you face involving securities law, talk to an experienced Miami securities law lawyer who can further answer the question, "Why mediation?" if mediation seems to be the right path to a cost-effective resolution.
Opportunities in Mediation
Why not listen to what the defendant is willing to offer in mediation? A reasonable resolution reached through mediation may save costs, eliminate risk, prevent aggravation, and allow both parties to go on with other important business that would otherwise be delayed.
A mediated agreement allows disputants to resolve a case using their own good ideas and in-depth knowledge of the case. A judge, a jury, or an arbitrator may never fully understand your case or appreciate the full ramifications of a decision reached in a courtroom or in an arbitration hearing room as well as the affected parties themselves do.
Mediation is private and, for many people in legal disputes, less stressful than litigation or arbitration. The stress of a trial or final hearing in arbitration can be overwhelming, with many negative consequences going beyond the actual financial matter in dispute. It can affect people's personal lives, health and reputation. By contrast a mediated settlement gives both parties control and can be handled on a customized timetable that is mutually agreed upon.
Mediation: a Beneficial Learning Experience
Mediation forces each side in a legal dispute to listen to the other and learn the opposing view of a case.
