as an effective tool to resolve disputesMore
Mediation is a modern non-judicial way of resolving disputes and conflicts where a neutral third party (mediator) assists parties to discuss their differences and make mutually acceptable agreements.
I am a lawyer and used to be involved in dispute resolution. However, it is quite difficult to prevent conflicts with a business partner when you withdraw from the business. I got great experience and am very thankful to mediators Olga Khmaruk and Olena Bilozor who coached me for the upcoming negotiations. They helped me to understand my values and set priorities, and in general coached for my future negotiations. As a result, I avoided conflicts, and the negotiations were successful. Olga and Olena are high level mediators whom I can recommend for both the individual negotiations coaching and for dispute resolution in mediations.
We engaged DecisionLab to help us negotiate the terms of our future business project, and we are all very happy with the results. Now it is difficult even to imagine when all these important issues would have been clarified (and would they ever be?) if not in mediation. We discussed goals and expectations from the new business as well as a lot of other highly important issues including financing and management. Olena and Olga are masters, whose attention does not escape any important word or emotion of the participant in the process. I really like their non-judgment, neutrality - every word - strictly on business. They demonstrate high professionalism, and it is a true pleasure to work with such people. I strongly recommend mediation to partners who start their business, or to those who already work together. I'm sure it will give an excellent opportunity to clarify all "unspoken" matters, constructively discuss a hidden or open conflict. I’ll use Olga’s and Olena’s services as mediators further (for now our work has been lasting for three months already) and recommend to colleagues. Thank you for your work, it is very valuable!
I would like to thank Olga and Olena from DecisionLab! Our purpose was to establish a proper and clear partnership in our new business project, on the terms that are beneficial for all co-founders and investors. We asked DecisionLab to conduct a business set-up mediation for us. Mediators performed great work, and we are very satisfied with the result! Due to deep understanding of the mediation process and past experience as legal consultants mediators created an environment and process for us that allowed to establish business partnership smoothly, correctly and professionally! Thank you!
