Small businesses are a vital part of the Texas economy, but most small business owners find it difficult to handle legal disputes, whether their company is struggling, growing or functioning at a comfortable size. They simply don’t have the time or money to deal with lawsuits while performing the daily operations of their companies. At Hayes, Berry, White & Vanzant, LLP, with offices in Denton, Flower Mound, Gainesville and Celina, we offer a cost-effective and time-saving method of resolving many of these disputes outside of court through mediation. We draw on our more than 30 years of experience as business lawyers to work as mediators in small business disputes throughout the Dallas–Fort Worth area and beyond.
Mediation is a confidential form of alternative dispute resolution in which a neutral third party is hired by the participants and their attorneys to guide them toward resolving issues. Mediation allows small businesses to discuss and resolve misunderstandings and disagreements that affect their bottom line. As mediators, we don’t make any decisions: the parties themselves must be willing to work together to reach agreement. When mediation is successful in resolving disputes involving small businesses, it can help owners save time, expense and stress.
We mediate a variety of small business issues, including disputes between business partners, between purchasers and sellers of the business and its assets, and between small businesses and their lessors, franchisers, contractors, customers and others. As long as all of the parties are willing to submit to mediation in good faith, we are capable of addressing any relevant questions they might have. If everyone is willing to compromise, we can help facilitate a solution that meets everyone’s needs.
Mediation provides a structured method of resolving business disputes. The process offers you several advantages over litigation:
While mediation may not work for every small business dispute, it can save business owners committed to the process from taking time away from work to go to court — especially with the help of the right mediator.
