Commercial Real Estate Mediation

Texas Mediators Help Clients Resolve Commercial Real Estate Disputes

Denton lawyers work with businesses to avoid costly property disagreements in the Dallas–Fort Worth area

Commercial real estate offers great opportunities to owners, investors and tenants alike, but a property dispute that gets out of hand can drain the financial resources of everyone involved. It can hold up the deal or block the transaction from happening at all. At Hayes, Berry, White & Vanzant, LLP, with offices in Denton, Flower Mound, and Gainesville, we have decades of experience successfully handling commercial real estate issues of all kinds and have two attorneys who are certified in Commercial and Residential real estate by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. With these credentials and our experience as mediators, we help facilitate the settlement of legal disputes over commercial real estate without the intervention of the courts.

Skilled real estate mediators explain how the process works

Mediation is a confidential form of alternative dispute resolution in which the participants and their attorneys hire a neutral third party to resolve issues outside of court. Mediators for commercial real estate transactions help resolve misunderstandings and disagreements over contracts, leases, and other property issues. As mediators, we don’t make any decisions: the parties themselves must be willing to work together to reach consensus. Our job is to guide parties toward an agreement that satisfies everyone involved and keeps the transaction from failing.

Proven property advocates mediate on a range of issues

We mediate a variety of commercial real estate issues, including:

  • Commercial construction and financing of projects
  • Purchase and sale of commercial buildings and properties
  • Problems between commercial real estate brokers and their clients
  • The interpretation of lease terms and other lessor-lessee problems

We are capable of addressing any relevant legal questions the parties have and, if everyone is willing to compromise, can be effective at helping them to reach a solution everyone can live with.

Established law firm explains the benefits of mediating a commercial real estate dispute

Mediation provides a structured method of negotiating a settlement. The process offers you several advantages over litigating commercial property disputes:

  • It is much less expensive and time-consuming.
  • Discussions are confidential and afford privacy not found in court.
  • You and your attorney more control over the process and can make decisions rather than having a court impose its decisions on you.
  • The resolution of the dispute requires your consent.
  • The process can build trust between the parties that might make future disputes less likely or more amenable to agreement.

Mediation won’t work if one or more of the parties lack the commitment to reach an agreement or when one party’s position is intractable. But for the right parties in the right situation, it offers a favorable alternative to a long, drawn-out court battle.
