Sometimes mediation is chosen as a way to resolve a dispute. The disadvantage of mediation is that it often involves a very long process and it might not be workable in the family dynamics. In addition, the mediator only acts as facilitator rather than an active participator to resolve the conflict. We believe in a more effective conflict resolutions in which parties can reach a solution by means of explaining but also negotiating their positions. Sometimes clarifying the facts is a key point, for example by carrying out a valuation of the company.
