Mediation Is An Effective Dispute Resolution Tool

Our mediators can assist litigants reach timely and cost-effective settlements of dispute involving a wide range of complex legal issues.

Parsons Behle & Latimer has an extensive range of settlement and mediation experience, including representing a variety of Utah companies, assisting families touched by unnecessary tragedy, representing or monitoring insurance carriers’ interests in high-stakes litigation, and representing multinational corporations in complex matters.  Experience such as this allows us to assist clients and counsel seeking to resolve difficult and complex disputes in a more timely and affordable manner.  

Mediation provides a mechanism to not only resolve disputes, but clear a path that allows for more effective and positive use of time and resources.  Our experience gives us the ability to quickly grasp arguments, assess risks, evaluate positions, avoid bottlenecks in negotiations, and seek potential win/win solutions thereby providing litigants and their counsel with an effective and affordable tool for resolving disputes and reducing risks.

Mediation requires work, effort, compromise, pragmatism, trust and candor. With our deep litigation and negotiation experience, from both a plaintiff and defendant’s perspective, as well as our interactive approach to dispute resolution, we strive to be of assistance in mediations involving, but not limited to the following areas:

  • Commercial Litigation
  • Insurance Claims
  • Intellectual Property
  • Medical Malpractice
  • Personal Injury
  • Product Liability
