Perhaps you have already experienced this: Discussions in a professional context are characterized by personal emotions instead of factual arguments, which makes it difficult or even impossible to deal with the issue in a solution-oriented manner.

Conflict hotspots in companies too

Unresolved differences in human interaction often lead to the courts having to be involved in order to end the dispute. Such tensions often arise between companies and shareholders, e.g. during restructuring, in economic crisis situations, when organizing succession solutions, etc. However, various potential sources of conflict can also arise within a company, be it between individual employees, between superiors and subordinates or between management and employee representatives.

Legal proceedings are often associated with disadvantages for commercial enterprises, as they are cost-intensive, lengthy and have an uncertain outcome. Furthermore, they often lead to emotional stress for the parties involved. If court proceedings end in a disputed decision, the losing party often has difficulty accepting the outcome of the proceedings, which frequently leads to subsequent disputes and further hardening of interpersonal relationships.

Trained mediators at your side

As an alternative to state court proceedings, the conflict resolution procedure of commercial mediation is an instrument for settling disputes out of court. PKF Fasselt is at your side as a mediator, offering you a professional framework that enables you to resolve your conflicts independently. We support you in corporate law conflicts, e.g. in the context of company succession, external business conflicts that may arise, for example, between companies and business partners, suppliers, etc., internal company conflicts and other business-related conflicts of any kind.

Impartial and professional expertise for a win-win situation

With principles of impartiality and confidentiality, the mediation process offers the opportunity to reach a future-oriented solution quickly and easily. Business mediation is better suited than any other dispute resolution instrument for avoiding public disputes that can damage the reputation of the parties to the conflict. Mediators, as impartial and competent third parties, support the conflicting parties in developing a solution on their own initiative that benefits both sides. There are no winners or losers. The aim is to achieve a win-win situation that enables the parties involved to continue working together as equals.

Advantages of business mediation

Business mediation is a time-saving and cost-controlled alternative to other out-of-court dispute resolution procedures or judicial conflict resolution.

In particular, this enables the development of communication structures that can help to resolve conflicts in the future and incorporate entrepreneurial objectives.

Business mediation serves the future-oriented and sustainable resolution of conflicts by clarifying the actual interests of the parties involved, which are hidden behind the positions represented by the parties, and thus enables them to continue working together unencumbered.

External mediators are not integrated into company structures and hierarchies. They are impartial and help the parties to work out a conflict resolution in a structured process with an unbiased view of the essentials. This enables them to treat the parties to the conflict fairly and with trust.

Business mediation avoids conflicts being aired in public and the associated reputation-damaging reports in the media. The mediator's duty of confidentiality and a corresponding confidentiality agreement between the parties ensure that confidentiality is maintained in the mediation process.

The benefits of successful mediation include, in particular, beneficial and smooth cooperation, such as an improved working atmosphere or increased identification with the company.
