We focus our mediation services on IP matters using a confidential dispute resolution system developed over the past 23 years. The system focuses parties and counsel on identifying realistic boundaries and values of IP rights in dispute, acknowledging the strengths and weaknesses of respective positions, and guarding the confidential mediation process against influences that unnecessarily distract, complicate and potentially derail resolution of the uncertainties, risks and costs of continued litigation. When cases are appropriate for settlement or narrowing of issues, we work with parties and counsel to reduce agreements to writing the same day, whenever possible. You can learn more about our mediation services at www.NavigatingIP.com.
